Spike TV is teaming with Pierce Brosnan to develop the event series "The Crusaders".
Set during the Third Crusade, after the fall of Jerusalem to Saladin's armies, the story centers on two different knights who journey from Scotland to the Holy Land for very different reasons.
War, politics and betrayal are all played out as they encounter the likes of Richard the Lionheart, Saladin, the Hashshashin and their own personal demons.
David Franzoni ("Gladiator") and Michael Finch ("Predators") will pen the script and executive produce alongside Brosnan and Beau St. Clair.
This follows on from the network's announcement yesterday of Ben Kingsley joining their "King Tut" event series.
