BBC AMERICA has released the very first photos for The Musketeers, their new 10-part action drama set for 2014.
Created by My Week with Marilyn‘s Adrian Hodges, Musketeers takes the characters from Alexandre Dumas‘ classic novel and puts them on the chaotic, lawless streets of 17th century Paris, where soldiers Athos, Aramis and Porthos serve as Louis XIII’s personal bodyguards. They meet and befriend D’Artagan, a skilled fighter who is dead-set on achieving justice for his father’s death. Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias) stars as D’Artagnan, with Tom Burke (The Hour) as Athos, Santiago Cabrera (Heroes) as Aramis and Howard Charles as Porthos. (The Hour‘s Peter Capaldi, Tamla Kari, Maimie McCoy, and Hugo Speer round out the ensemble.)
Here are the first snaps of the lead cast in character:
