The Winter King - Bad Wolf
We are delighted to be with Bad Wolf again on ‘The Winter King’ as the sole VFX vendor on the series. We have provided on-set VFX Supervision and Production support and we are creating a wide range of VFX to help bring to life this exciting re-imagining of the Arthurian Legends.
Based on Bernard Cornwell’s Warlord Chronicles, THE WINTER KING is an epic but intimate 10-part returning series which will shoot in Wales and the West Country in 2022.
Portraying a revisionist take on the well-loved Arthurian legends, the series follows Arthur Pendragon as he evolves from outcast son to legendary warrior and leader. The Winter King is set in the 5th century, long before Britain was united, in a land of warring factions and tribes when the world was brutal and lives were often fleeting.
The series is being produced by Bad Wolf, in association with One Big Picture, with international distribution being handled by Sony Pictures Television.
Kate Brooke (A Discovery Of Witches, Bancroft) and Ed Whitmore (Manhunt, Rillington Place) are adapting Bernard Cornwell’s Warlord Chronicles for the series and Otto Bathurst (His Dark Materials, Halo) will be the lead director.
