Those suffering Game of Thrones withdrawal might be interested to hear that European satellite broadcasting giant Sky is teaming with online juggernaut Amazon to co-produce Britannia, a 10-part dramatic series set in 43 AD.
The show, to premiere on Amazon Prime Video in 2017, follows the Roman army’s invasion of Britannia, “a mysterious land ruled by wild warrior women and powerful druids who can channel the powerful forces of the underworld.” Britannia, which is shooting on location in Prague and Wales, stars Kelly Reilly (Mary Watson in the recent Sherlock Holmes films), David Morrissey (The Governor on The Walking Dead), Zoë Wanamaker (Princess Marie on Mr. Selfridge) and Stanley Weber (Comte St. Germain on Outlander).
Brittania is written by Jez Butterworth, who also wrote the screenplay for Black Mass, the 2015 film starring Johnny Depp that told the tale of former South Boston organized crime figure Whitey Bulger.
