Arthurian legend based on Bernard Cornwell’s Trilogy. Whilst being universal, these stories have specific relevance to our 21st century lives.

It is a returning 10 x 1 hour episode TV series for Epix which One Big Picture are co-producing with Bad Wolf.
THE ARRIVAL OF WANG
Have you ever looked at the way we live, the world that we have created; the injustice and greed; the state of our mental and physical health, of our environment, the eternal conflicts and separation; the rampant corruption that courses through the veins of our governments, legal systems, religions, banking, education and law enforcement….we could go on and on…and asked;
“What would an alien make of all of this?”
This movie is the extrapolation of that question. An Alien visits our planet and holds a bright mirror up to reflect to us how we are living…how humanity responds will determine the outcome.
It is an English language remake of the Italian Sci-Fi B-Movie and shooting in 2021

A thrilling expose of the systems of humanity, as we watch the various factions fight for a return to ‘normal'. The ultimate realisation becoming, even if it is possible, is ’normal' what we should actually be striving for?
A more prescient story is hard to imagine.
