First Look: Galavant

We've had Glee (which will be over in 2015), we've had Smash (which bombed after two seasons) and we still just about have Nashville (which my sister loves and I enjoy it too). Now thanks to ABC (again), we can add another musical themed series to the roster ....

Galavant - created by Dan Fogelman, Alan Menken, and Glenn Slaterand starring Joshua Sasse focuses on the titular character being once known for his dragon slaying and general acts of heroism until the love of his life Madalena was kidnapped by King Richard (Timothy Omundson) and our hero became somewhat slack in his duties until the arrival of Princess Isabella of Valencia who needs Galavant to get his act together so she can get her kingdom back from King Richard.

Having watched the trailer for this upcoming series, don't expect this show to take itself seriously. It's rather unashamedly cheesy to the hilt with Richard being more camp than sinister and Galavant himself is something of a douche as well. However, it actually does look like a lot of fun and while it could really go either way, it's one of the few other series aside from Agent Carter that seems genuinely worth getting into from ABC and even Vinnie Jones as Richard's henchman doesn't seem so off-putting either.

Season 1 Trailer:

Galavant will air on ABC later in the 2014-2015 TV season.
