The 10-hour series covers the period from 1291, when the Knights Templar were forced out of Acre, their last stronghold in Jerusalem, to Friday 13th of October, 1307, when King Philip IV of France disbanded the order.

“When I was a kid, it was cowboys and knights but even when I was a struggling actor, I collected knight swords, who knows what I thought I was doing,” Jeremy told THR. “[This is an opportunity to do something] bigger and deeper. To be in cinema today you have to be a superhero and put on tights. A lot of the quality of content has really swung to TV, it’s a place where you can really get involved in story and character.”
