Starz TV to produce series based on Arthurian legend

In the spirit of the successful TV series The Tudors, Starz CEO Chris Albrecht will take on the Arthurian legend. The 10-episode Camelot is scheduled to premiere in early 2011.

Based on "Le Morte d'Arthur," the series will be written by Torchwood writer Chris Chibnall and will "take on the tale that looks to weave authenticity into a narrative relatable to contemporary audiences."

A cast has not yet been chosen.
