I'm a visiting guest today at King Richard Armitage . This is a site supporting Richard Armitage‘s dream project of producing a Richard III TV series by signing a Petition.
A group of very active supporters want to use the collective voice of the Richard Armitage fanbase to demonstrate to potential investors that there is already a global audience for this project. There is an active online community of bloggers and webmasters who will promote its launch and an ever-expanding loyal fanbase who will watch the series.
To revise this king’s negative and ill-deserved image in popular culture and pay tribute to his legacy, Richard Armitage has more than once expressed interest in developing a major film/television project that is envisioned as a prequel to The Tudors, a television series that aired on Showtime and BBC.
This project is a deeply personal one for Richard, who was born on the day that Richard III died (August 22) and named after the king by his father.
I was glad to answer some questions about my interest in both Richard and, of course, I signed the petition. I would love to see this project come true. What about you? Have you signed the petition? Would you like a TV series proposing and popularizing a totally new image of Richard III?
