NBC to Develop "Kings"

Despite the writers strike that will force most scripted television programs to halt production, NBC opted to order a new pilot called "Kings" that reimagines the story of King David.

The story, to be written by former "Heroes" scribe Michael Green, takes place in a mythical modern city that is part of a large kingdom always at war, according to Variety. The young protagonist of the story, based on David from the tale of David and Goliath, is a soldier who becomes famous for defeating a stronger enemy. The plan for season one is to show the character's quick rise to power.

Entertainment Weekly reports NBC greenlit the production on November 2, only days before the Writers Guild of America went on strike, so it's not yet known when the production will actually start. --Chris Sardelli
