If Sunday’s ratings are any indication, ABC’s Galavant could just be a hit. As a result, the network is scheduling an encore of the first two episodes of the Spamalot-meets-Disney musical comedy for Wednesday, January 7th (tomorrow!) at 10/9C.
Galavant (ABC Mondays, 8/7C) is a weird little hybrid of a show – a musical about a knight, his One True Love and an evil king. In its complete disregard for anachronism and its willingness to go for the silly, it feels like a clever fusion of Monty Python and Disney.
Stars of THE SCORPION KING 2: RISE OF A WARRIOR, Karen David and Michael Copon are true rising performers in the entertainment business, with lucrative careers in TV, film and music. Filmed entirely on location in South Africa, this made for DVD (which debuts August 19, 2008) sequel was directed by renowned film and music video director Russell Mulcahy.
The story concerns a young warrior named Mathayus (Copon) and his love interest Layla (David) as they try to reclaim their kingdom from the black magic warlord Sargon (Randy Couture). During their adventures, they encounter a menacing Minotaur – half-man half-bull, travel across many lands — including Egypt, and are trapped in a cryptic underworld, presided over by the sinister vixen Astarte (Natalie Becker).
Both set to emerge as major stars, David and Copon worked tirelessly through the short intense production schedule for THE SCORPION KING 2. Here they reflect on their roles, their careers, shooting and training on location, and working with acclaimed director Mulcahy.
