The Legend of William Tell

Show Summary

Described by executive producer Raymond Thompson as "Star Wars on the planet Earth", this is a fantasy saga of bravery, magic, myth and romance. William Tell is the youthful leader of a band of young, ‘brat pack' outlaws, forever hunted by the forces of darkness, led by Xax and Kreel, who have usurped power in their homeland. The series of self-contained stories follows Will's quest to restore young Princess Vara to her rightful place on the royal throne and defeat Xax and Kreel's forces - and by doing so, bring back peace and order to the Kingdom of Kale. There is action and adventure along the way, magic, creatures, mystery, intrigue - but also much human drama and interplay among Will's rebel band who must support each other in their quest. The group encounter a diverse range of people and situations on their journey - some help the resistance movement, others are cohorts of Xax and Kreel… Filmed on location throughout New Zealand, the series has stunning scenery and beautiful production values. The series is available as 16 x 1-hour episodes or 32 x half -hour episodes. -------------------------------------- OTHER CREW Directed by Declan Eames Geoff Husson John Reid Graham Wetherell Writing credits (in alphabetical order) Harry Duffin writer Production Design by Dan Hennah Production Management Geoff Husson .... executive in charge of production Second Unit Director or Assistant Director Michele Priest .... first assistant director Sound Department Corrin Ellingford .... boom operator Other crew Aaron Cowan .... electrician -------------------------------------- Production Companies * Cloud Nine Entertainment Distributors * Cumulus Distribution -----------------------------------moreless
