Channel Four has purchased the Canadian-British co-production Camelot from Take 5 Productions and Irish partner Octagon.

Channel Four picked up the U.K. rights to the modern version of the Arthurian romantic legend as part of a deal with international distributor GK-tv.

The 10-part Camelot series, to star Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green and Jamie Campbell Bowers, has already been acquired by the CBC and Starz Entertainment for the U.S. market.

The TV drama will be posted in Toronto ahead of an early 2011 broadcast debut.

Take 5 had announced its involvement with the project earlier this spring.
