Anyways, I bring this all up now because Ron Moore, the man behind Battlestar Galactica, is planning on bringing A Knight's Tale to ABC as a TV series. Deadline has the scoop:
The series is expected to stay close to the premise and the style of the movie – it is described as a medieval fantasy incorporating modern music and themes that follows the journey of a young man who starts out impersonating a knight of the realm and ends up becoming one. In addition to writing, Moore is executive producing with his producing partner at Tall Ship Prods.Will this work? Would you watch A Knight's Tale as a TV series? The movie was one that proved Ledger could carry films on his own. Could a TV series do the same for another up-and-coming actor?
