ABC Studios has announced that ‘comedy extravaganza’ Galavant will premiere in the US on 4 January 2015.

The major US TV series based production at The Bottle Yard Studios earlier this year, between August and October.

Screenwriter/executive producer Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Tangled, Cars) has teamed up with Broadway and Hollywood award-winning musical team – Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid, Tangled) – to create this musical comedy fairytale of epic proportions.

Galavant stars Joshua Sasse as Galavant, Timothy Omundson as King Richard, Vinnie Jones as Gareth, Mallory Jansen as Madalena, Karen David as Isabella and Luke Youngblood as Sid.

“We decided to base Galavant at The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol because we were confident we’d get a first class service from Fiona Francombe and her team,” said Helen Flint, UK Producer. “The studio is conveniently situated for Bristol and the great locations that surround the city.”

The show traces the fortunes of dashing hero Galavant, who has lost the love of his life, Madalena, to the evil King Richard and is ready to take revenge and restore his “happily ever after” – but not without a few twists and turns along the way.
