SPOTLIGHT AND CHARACTER PHOTOS FOR DELIGHTFUL NEW HISTORICAL MUSICAL COMEDY TV SERIES 'GALAVANT' WITH JOSHUA SASSE, TIMOTHY OMUNDSON, MALLORY JANSEN

'GALAVANT' EPIC TV SHOW
YOUR FAVOURITE SUNDAY KNIGHT
Your favourite new Sunday knight will soon become GALAVANT - that is the name of the main star of upcoming new historical musical comedy series which starts airing at ABC January 4th! Its four hilarious episodes will air on Sunday evenings catching the perfect timing while regular shows are on the New Year's break!

SINGING HERO
 Producer Dan Fogelman (Tangled, Cars) teams up with award winning musical team - composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Glenn Slater (Tangled) - for a 4 week comedy extravaganza. Once upon a time, the dashing hero, GALAVANT  (Joshua Sasse) lost the love of his life, Madalena (Mallory Jansen), to the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson). Now, our fallen hero is ready to take revenge and restore his “happily ever after.” But it won’t be without a few twists and turns along the way. John Stamos, Ricky Gervais, Rutger Hauer, Hugh Bonneville will guest star!
THE GALLANT KNIGHT
Charming and handsome, Galavant (Jossua Sasse) is a gallant knight and hero so beloved he is known by just one name. When he goes to save the love of his life, Madalena, after she was kidnapped by the evil King Richard, she rejects GALAVANT when he proclaims all he has to offer her is his love. Since then, he has gone broke, stopped bathing and has gained weight - most likely due to his penchant for libations.
THE EVIL KING
King Richard (Timothy Omundson) is the evil king who kidnapped Madalena. He has a strong hatred and great disdain for GALAVANT, especially since his wife Madalena cannot stop talking about him. He sends Isabella to lure GALAVANT to him, with plans to kill the beloved hero. Notorious for his evil ways, King Richard indulges in such hobbies as raising taxes and tormenting the poor. The evil king isn’t as tough as one may think, though - one insult from Madalena and he bursts into tears.
THE FLIMSY QUEEN
A lady with long legs and glowing skin, Madalena (Mallory Jansen) is the love of Galavant’s life who gets kidnapped by King Richard. When GALAVANT comes to save her, she chooses the life of fame and fortune over him and marries King Richard instead. Rigid and demanding, she shows her true colours after becoming queen. She is also a bit of a nymphomaniac.

THE HANDY HENCH MAN
Rough and tough, Gareth (played by action star Vinnie Jones) is King Richard’s right-hand henchman who does the king’s fighting for him. He is King Richard’s brawn and often has to instruct the king on how to be more manly in his ways.
THE SPUNKY PRINCESS
Isabella (Karen David), (full name: Princess Isabella Lucia Maria Elizabetta of Valencia) is the spunky Princess of Valencia who seeks out and engages the once gallant GALAVANT in order to save her people from King Richard. She is sent by the king to lure GALAVANT to him, as King Richard plans to kill Galavant in front of his former flame, Madalena. She is a great actress, as her kingdom is known for theater... and also, cabbage.

TRUSTY SQUIRE
Sid (Luke Youngblood) is Galavant’s trusty squire who assists the fallen hero. He keeps Galavant’s life in order, especially after Madalena rejected GALAVANT, who hasn’t been himself since then. Sid is adopted; when he was a baby, an older couple found him on their doorstep and took him in.

  1. John Stamos? It's interesting to see he's still getting work! He's probably playing the grandpa or something, which will make me feel super old.

  9. That's a good-looking cast--too airbrushed in the posters, though. I can't resist a gallant knight story.
