Netflix has released a first look for their forthcoming series The Letter for the King, based on the best-selling novel of the same name. The new series stars Amir Wilson (His Dark Materials, The Secret Garden, The Kid Who Would Be King) Ruby Serkis, Thaddea Graham and Gijs Blom.
The series’ synopsis reads:
The Letter for the King is the story of a ruthless prince who threatens to cast the world into darkness, when a young knight in training named Tiuri (Wilson) embarks on an epic quest to deliver a secret letter to the king. Along the way, he unexpectedly finds himself at the center of a magical prophecy foretelling the rise of a hero who can defeat the prince and restore peace. If he’s going to survive the journey, Tiuri will have to learn what it means to be a true knight—and a true leader.
The Letter for the King is written by Will Davies (How To Train Your Dragon, Johnny English, Puss in Boots), who also serves as executive producer. Paul Trijbits (Saving Mr. Banks, Sing Street, The Casual Vacancy) is also an executive producer. The original series produced by FilmWave will debut with six 45-minute episodes.
