TV show description:
This historical action drama series is based on the characters found in the novel The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. Set in Paris in the year 1630, Athos, Aramis and Porthos are highly-trained Musketeers who fight to protect their king and France.
Along the way, they meet a young but skilled farm boy who longs to become a Musketeer. Charismatic, impulsive and ridiculously brave, young D’Artagnan (Luke Pasqualino) has exceptional skill with a sword. Athletic and determined, he is also intensely romantic. In time, D’Artagnan will become the greatest Musketeer of them all and a legend in his own lifetime.
A natural leader, Athos (Tom Burke) is brave, resourceful and the glue that binds the Musketeers together. He nurses a dark secret in his past and has bouts of solitary drinking.
