Well, this could be great fun…

BBC America has just announced a new co-production with BBC One - The Musketeers, a ten-parter inspired by the Alexandre Dumas classic.   The series, written by Adrian Hodges (My Week with Marilyn, Primeval), will debut in 2014.

The network calls the series a “fresh and contemporary take on the beloved story… [set in the 17th Century], it tells the story of a band of brothers, highly trained soldiers who are assigned to protect King and country.”
