In the wake of King Uther’s sudden death, chaos threatens to engulf Britain. When the sorcerer Merlin has visions of a dark future, he installs the young and impetuous Arthur, Uther’s unknown son and heir, who has been raised from birth as a commoner. But Arthur’s cold and ambitious half sister Morgan will fight him to the bitter end, summoning unnatural forces to claim the crown in this epic battle for control. These are dark times indeed for the new king, with Guinevere being the only shining light in Arthur’s harsh world. Faced with profound moral decisions, and the challenge of uniting a kingdom broken by war and steeped in deception, Arthur will be tested beyond imagination.
The series is led by an amazing ensemble cast that includes Jamie Campbell Bower as Arthur, Joseph Fiennes as the wizard Merlin, Eva Green in her television debut as Morgan, and Tamsin Egerton as Guinevere. Camelot is an Irish-Canadian co-production between Octagon and Take 5 Productions, and is Executive Produced by GK-TV, a division of GK Films along with Ecosse Films Douglas Rae.
