Showtime mining ‘Camelot’ myth for new show

Alan Lee's Camelot

Is King Arthur due for a comeback? The BBC recently launched Merlin (coming to America on NBC, eventually) and now we have word that The Tudors team is developing a Camelot. The myth hasn’t had great luck on TV (both 2001′s The Mists of Avalon and Sam Neill’s 1998 Merlin are better off forgotten) but who knows? There’s plenty of blood and sex to go around, so perhaps the time has come for a R-rated Pendragon soap opera.

    Fangirls are lovin’ the new Merlin, which tosses canon to the wind. It’s definitely a different approach to the legend.
