Hot on the heels of his role in A+E’s smash hit Vikings, Travis Fimmel has signed up to work with HISTORY again to develop a scripted anthology series based on famous anti-heroes.

With Wyatt Earp among the bad boys who will be featured, this as-yet-untitled project promises to be a compelling new take on some of history’s most notorious characters.

“Travis is a remarkable actor and we’re honored to continue our relationship with him after his recent magnetic performance on Vikings,” said Arturo Interian, Senior Vice President, Scripted Programming, HISTORY.

Fimmel himself says: “I’ve always been fascinated with what motivates people’s transgressions and the scandalous journey into infamy. I wanted to re-examine stories people think they know without the rose-coloured glasses of Hollywood and let the audience decide for themselves if people like Wyatt Earp were sinners or victims of life circumstances.”

Fimmel’s character in Vikings of course met a somewhat grisly end – something that’s sure to befall many of the anti-heroes in this new series too.

E’ stato fantastico lavorare con Global Listings! Sono stati attenti e solleciti, ci hanno fornito tutte le informazioni richieste. Eravamo nuovi sul mercato e avevamo un sacco di domande. Loro ci hanno spianato la strada ed assistito quando ne abbiamo avuto la necessità. La collaborazione è stata ineccepibile.

Abbiamo collaborato con Global Listings al lancio dei nuovi canali nell’Europa centrale e dell’est e siamo rimasti sbalorditi dallo standard del servizio, dai riscontri immediati per le modifiche ai palinsesti e dalla velocità nell’ottenere informazioni sui palinsesti e sulle descrizioni dei programmi con largo anticipo, nonchè dalla consegna dei contenuti delle nostre GEP. Collaboreremo sicuramente ancora insieme quando ci espanderemo su nuovi mercati!
