"The Musketeers" (TV show) is a drama series on BBC America inspired by the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas anc created by Adrian Hodges ("My Week with Marilyn," "Survivors," "Primeval").

The series is a fresh and contemporary take on the beloved story and characters created by Dumas. It tells the story of a band of brothers, highly trained soldiers who are assigned to protect King and country. Courageous, impulsive, ready to fight any battle, if the cause is just.

The series is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris, where law and order is more an idea than reality. More than King Louis XIII's personal bodyguards, Athos, Aramis and Porthos stand resolutely for social justice, for honor, for valor, for love — and for the thrill of it. Luke Pasqualino ("Skins," "The Borgias") will star as D'Artagnan alongside Musketeers Tom Burke ("Great Expectations," "The Hour") as Athos, Santiago Cabrera ("Merlin," "Heroes") as Aramis and Howard Charles (Royal Shakespeare Company) as Porthos. Together they are a crack-team of highly trained soldiers.

"The Musketeers" is a BBC Drama Production for BBC One, co-produced by BBC America and BBC Worldwide, executive produced by Jessica Pope ("The Good Cop," "State Within," "Silent Witness").
