Atlantis on BBC.

September 8, 2013 | By | Reply More

The BBC have released the first big trailer for their Merlin replacement on Saturday night’s family viewing slot… Atlantis. And it looks a lot like an understudy at the Hercules/Xena/Sinbad school of fantasy TV series, with not much to set it part from ancient Greece, including the three main characters, Jason (Argonauts), Hercules (yep), and Pythagoras (the clever one, by any chance?).

Here’s the official blurb for the series…

A fantasy drama set in a world of legendary heroes and mythical creatures. Far from home and desperate for answers, Jason washes up on the shores of an ancient land. A mysterious place; a world of bull leaping, of snake haired goddesses and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants – this is the city of Atlantis. Aided by his two new friends, Pythagoras and Hercules, Jason embarks on a voyage of discovery, and salvation, which sees him brush shoulders with Medusa, come face to face with the Minotaur and even do battle with the dead. Coming soon.
