Created by Adrian Hodges, The Musketeers is a new adaptation of the legendary tale of the three musketerrs. The series is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris where law and order is more an idea than reality and follows the three Musketeers: Athos, Aramis and Porthos who are far more than King Louis XIII’s personal bodyguards. They stand resolutely for social justice, for honour, for valour, for love and for the thrill of it. The drama series is being produced by BBC Drama Productions in association with BBC Worldwide & BBC America and stars Luke Pasqualino (Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome), Tom Burke (Great Expectations), Santiago Cabrera (Merlin), Howard Charles, Peter Capaldi (The Hour), Tamla Kari (Cuckoo), Maimie McCoy (Loving Miss Hatto), and Hugo Speer (Bedlam).
