William Shakespeare Is Getting The TV Treatment! The CW Orders A Drama About His Young Years, But — Who Will Play The Literary Legend?
Well this is certainly a show we never thought we'd see!
Apparently The CW has partnered with Mark Harmon, aka that guy from NCIS, to bring a drama about a young William Shakespeare to your television!
The project, titled Shakespeare's Sisters, supposedly has the 'grit' of Game of Thrones and the heart of Shakespeare in Love, so it sounds like a pretty interesting show.
Reportedly, the plot is a drama centered in 1590s London and will follow a young Willy S as he finds prominence in the town while also being caught in the middle of a 'deadly conflict' between three witches and Queen Elizabeth, aka the HBIC.
The show will combine romance, revenge, and black magic, which means there's probably going to be nothing factual about the series at all, other than the fact that William was a real person. LOLz.
But hey, it worked for their hit show Reign so why not this one!
The question that comes to light, however, is who will play the young William Shakespeare?
Well, we've got a couple suggestions… How about…
