BBC lines up new teatime show: Atlantis

February 13th, 2013 by Owen Quinn Comments

What show would be man enough to try to take the Saturday evening slot on BBC that belongs to Doctor Who and shows like Merlin (above)?

Well, this autumn will see a brand new show debut on BBC 1 in the Saturday teatime slot.

Atlantis will take us to the legendary city where we will follow the adventures of Jason as Greek mythology will be explored for a new generation of fans. Expect to see Minotaurs and Medusas as we explore this new world. There will be 13 forty-five minute episodes.

It will be written by Howard Overman who has written for Merlin, Dirk Gently, Misfits and Vexed. Producing the show will be Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps and begins shooting in April in Morocco and Wales for transmission in the autumn.

Husband, dad and Ireland's hardest working author, Owen Quinn is currently knee deep in The Time Warriors, arguably the biggest sci-fi epic ever to come out of Ireland. He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
