26 posts in this topic

Atlantis is a new 13 part, 45-minute episode series, created and written by Howard Overman (Misfits, Dirk Gently, Vexed, Merlin) for Saturday nights this Autumn on BBC One

The city of Atlantis is a mysterious, ancient place; a world of bull leaping, of snake haired goddesses and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants.

It?s into this strange, compelling realm that the young Jason arrives and an amazing adventure begins, bringing to life the vast store of Greek myths and legends re-imagined for a new generation in an action packed 13-part series.

Executive produced by Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy (Merlin, Hex, As If, Sugar Rush) and Howard Overman for their new production company. It will begin shooting in Wales and Morocco in April.

The series will launch on Saturday nights this Autumn and is executive produced for BBC Cymru Wales by Bethan Jones.

I?ve learned that Robert Emms is the first actor to be cast in BBC One?s upcoming fantasy series Atlantis. My sources tell me that Emms will be playing a young Pythagoras, a brilliant mathematician and philosopher who is one of the many interesting characters that main character Jason meets upon arriving in Atlantis. An up and comer, Emms, repped by ICM Partners and Curtis Brown, is coming off of a starring role in Universal?s Kick Ass 2. His previous credits include War Horse and Relativity Media?s Mirror Mirror: The Untold Adventures of Snow White.

Created by Howard Overman (Misfits), Atlantis is set in the city of Atlantis: a mysterious ancient place; a world of bull leaping, of snake haired goddesses and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants. It?s into this strange, compelling realm that the young Jason arrives and an amazing adventure begins, bringing to life the vast store of Greek myths and legends. The series has been given a 13 episode order, and is set to begin production in Wales and Morocco in April. Howard Overman productions and BBC Cymru Wales are producing, with Howard Overman, Johnny Capps, Julian Murphy and Bethan Jones serving as executive producers. Justin Molotnikov (Merlin) is attached to direct.

Atlantis is BBC One?s newest stab at a fantasy series. The series is being billed as a replacement for Merlin, with Atlantis set to take over Merlin?s Saturday night time-slot this autumn. Word is that part of the reason for a 13 episode order ? beyond the success the BBC has seen with such larger orders for Doctor Who and Merlin - is down to potential international sales. A 13 episode first season is thought to make the series more attractive to international buyers, especially the Americans. I hear that BBC Worldwide is ?hopeful? of a sale to a US network, with Syfy being the most likely buyer.

Speaking of the cast, Ben Stephenson, Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning, said: ?The fantastic cast announced for Atlantis is testament to the ambition and scale of Howard Overman?s scripts. Some of the UK?s best loved actors are joining our newest talent to take the BBC One audience to a rich and wonderful world where any adventure is possible.?
