Walking Dead, True Detective Stars Team for Amazon War Drama

The Walking Dead‘s David Morrissey and True Detective‘s Kelly Reilly are going to war in Amazon’s forthcoming drama Britannia.

The new series, which takes place in the year 43 A.D., will follow Kerra (Reilly) and Antedia (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone‘s Zoë Wanamaker), arch-rivals in a land ruled by warrior women and powerful Druids capable of channeling the underworld. When Aulus Plautius (Morrisey) leads the Roman Imperial Army in an invasion of Britannia, they are forced to set aside their differences and work together to stop him. Stanley Weber (Outlander) and Hugo Speer (The Musketeers) co-star.

    I’d love to see Kelly, Molly Quinn and Susan Sullivan do a TV movie based on Widow’s Peak.
