BBC America brings 'The Musketeers' to TV
It seems like it's only been a few months since Alexandre Dumas' classic novel was last brought to the big screen, but BBC America announced this week that it will be producing a series adaptation of "The Musketeers."
The 10-part miniseries will be scripted by Adrian Hodges ("My Week with Marilyn") and will focus on Dumas' beloved characters, with a fresh story each week. That's why "The Musketeers" is only being described as "inspired" by Dumas.
"The series bristles with vivid escapism and heroic action adventure and is set to thrill audiences with cracking stories of the week," blurbs BBC America General Manager Perry Simon. "It is a perfect series for our Dramaville slot which has established itself as a showcase for outstanding and award-winning British drama."
Thus far, no actors have been cast.
"The Musketeers" is being produced for BBC One in the UK.
