Frank Miller to tackle King Arthur series for Netflix

Though this announcements comes very early, it appears to be the first time two creators are developing a book and series simultaneously.

Netflix has given a 10-episode, straight-to-series order for Cursed, a new and different rendition of the classic King Arthur legend, told from the perspective of a young girl destined to become the Lady of the Lake, according to THR.

Netflix Orders TV Series 'Cursed' From Frank Miller & Tom Wheeler Based On Book Reimagining King Arthur Legend

Cursed will tell the story of Nimue, a teenager with a mysterious gift. It won't be as easy as traveling a path to deliver the legendary sword to the wizard. Throughout her journey, she will become a symbol of courage against the complicit King Uther. There's a good chance it could even be Netflix's biggest show since Stranger Things, but we'll have to withhold full judgement on that prospect until the full series launches worldwide on April 13.

"I have always been entranced by the mythological Arthur story - and by Nimue, in particular", says Miller. It's interesting that the book can be both kid-friendly, like The Sword in The Stone, and terrifying, like Excalibur. The book will be written by Wheeler, with Miller illustrating. Also, that the children's books that he inherited from his mother triggered this passion.
