Knightfall (History) -- Knights Templar drama -- From EP Jeremy Renner -- 12/6/17







Quote:
HISTORY's new drama series "Knightfall," makes its series debut on Wednesday, December 6 at 10 PM ET/PT. From A+E Studios in association with Jeremy Renner's The Combine and Midnight Radio, the ten episode season takes viewers inside the medieval politics and warfare of the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages who were entrusted with protecting Christianity's most precious relics.

"Knightfall" begins after the fall of the city of Acre, the Templar's last stronghold in the Holy Land, where the Holy Grail is lost. Years later, a clue emerges suggesting the whereabouts of the Grail and sends the Templars, led by the noble, courageous and headstrong Templar Knight Landry (Tom Cullen, "Downton Abbey," "Gunpowder"), on a life or death mission to find the lost Cup of Christ. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their clash with the King of France, to the dark events leading to the demise of the Templar Order on Friday the 13th, 1307 - a date which became synonymous with bad luck - the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now. Focusing on themes such as belief, sacrifice, politics, love, power and revenge - "Knightfall" goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks to find out who these knights were, how they lived, and what they died believing. In addition to Cullen, the drama series also stars Pádraic Delaney (The Wind That Shakes the Barley, "The Tudors") as Gawain, once the greatest swordsman of the Templar Order who was crippled at Acre, and Simon Merrells ("Spartacus", "Dominion") as Tancrede, a steadfast, brave, and resolute knight who venerates his Templar vows above all else.

10 episode 1st season






Probably not going to be a huge draw here. Period dramas like this rarely get much attention.

I watched it this morning and thought it was ok. Cullen never showed much personality on Downton and he continued that trend here.

Looking forward to Jim Carter showing up, though it will be weird seeing Carson as the Pope.
