Sinbad Comes To Sky1 In July

And it's about time too. Seriously, I've heard about this months ago and now we're getting closer to it.

A 12 part series, Sinbad sees newcomer Elliot Knight taking on the lead role as the titular character flees home and heads out to the seas with a crew towards a voyage of discovery but things don't go that well when Sinbad makes an enemy of Lord Akbari, played by former Lost actor Naveen Andrews. Other members in the cast include Estella Daniels as aristocrat Nala, Elliot Cowan as Norwegian sailor Gunnar, Dimitri Leonidas as the ship's doctor, Anwar, Marama Corletta as jewel-thief Rina as well as Sophie Okenedo as Razia, Queen of the Water-Thieves and Orla Brady as the villainess Taryn.

From the looks of this, there's certainly been a fair amount of money spent on making this show look as lavish as possible and with the likes of Doctor Who and Merlin months away, this definitely looks worth getting into. Sky1 have been pretty good with their epic fantasy productions over the last few years and with a superb cast, this definitely looks like one to watch out for.

Trailer/More Details:

Sinbad airs on Sky1 from July. Times and dates to be confirmed.

That reminds me, has Once Upon a Time started airing in Britain yet?

It has. I need to catch up with it because I can't seem to get Five as a channel.
