As sister station A&E concentrates on “reality” programming, History is increasing its scripted offerings. They’ve already had some success in the ratings with Vikings and Six. Now, they’re introducing another bellicose drama, the Knightfall TV show, from executive producer Jeremy Renner. Will it prove to be a success? Will Knightfall be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
Set in the Middle Ages, Knightfall tells the story of the Knights Templar. The scripted History drama stars Tom Cullen, Pádraic Delaney, Simon Merrells, Olivia Ross, Ed Stoppard, Sabrina Bartlett, Julian Ovenden, Jim Carter, Bobby Schofield, Sarah-Sofie Boussnina, Sam Hazeldine, and Nasser Memarzia. Years after the Templars lose their last Holy Land stronghold, their dying Master Commander points them to the possible location of the Holy Grail. Whether they’re waging war in the Holy Land or in conflict with the king, they are rushing headlong toward the eventual demise of the Templar Order.
