BBC AMERICA TO CO-PRODUCE "THE MUSKETEERS"

Adrian Hodges to write the new series inspired by the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas

Television Critics Association, Los Angeles, August 1, 2012 - BBC AMERICA today announced it is co-producing BBC One's The Musketeers, a new drama inspired by the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas and written by Adrian Hodges (My Week with Marilyn, Survivors, Primeval).

The Musketeers is a fresh and contemporary take on the beloved story and characters created by Dumas. It tells the story of a band of brothers, highly trained soldiers who are assigned to protect King and country. Courageous, impulsive, ready to fight any battle, if the cause is just. The series shares Dumas' original 17th century setting and will feature a fresh story each week across its 10 x 60-minute run set for 2014.

Perry Simon, General Manager BBC AMERICA, said: "The series bristles with vivid escapism and heroic action adventure and is set to thrill audiences with cracking stories of the week. It is a perfect series for our DRAMAVILLE slot which has established itself as a showcase for outstanding and award-winning British drama."

The Musketeers (10x60) is a BBC Drama Production for BBC One, co-produced by BBC AMERICA and BBC Worldwide, executive produced by Jessica Pope (The Good Cop, State Within, Silent Witness).
