The show, set in the Late Middle Ages (roughly 1300-1500 AD) follows a warrior knight (Lee Jones) loyal to King Edward I, who wants to leave bloodshed behind after all of his battles. Naturally, violence finds him again and he's left with no choice but to raise "the bloodiest sword of all."
Take a look at two teasers, appropriately titled "Kneel" and "Scythe," which give us just a hint of the action and emotion to come, and the trailer, which definitely promises some bloody swordplay.
