BBC America Sets June Premiere Date for Cabrera’s “The Musketeers”

It’ll be “all for one and one for all” in the U.S. for Santiago Cabrera this summer…

BBC America has set a June 22 premiere date for The Musketeers, which stars the 35-year-old Venezuelan-born Chilean actor and former Heroes star.

The Musketeers

The Musketeers, a BBC Drama production for BBC One, has also received a second-season pick up from the network.

It was renewed by the flagship BBC network last month.

The series – a contemporary take on the classic Alexandre Dumas characters, The Musketeers – was created by Adrian Hodges (My Week With Marilyn). It’s set on the streets of 17th century Paris, where law and order is an idea more than a reality.

In addition to being King Louis XIII’s personal bodyguards, Athos, Aramis and Porthos stand resolutely for social justice, honor, valor, love — and for the thrill of it.

Cabrera portrays Aramis in the series alongside Luke Pasqualino (The Borgias) stars as D’Artagnan, Tom Burke (Great Expectations) as Athos and Howard Charles (Royal Shakespeare Company) as Porthos.

In the United Kingdom, the 10-episode The Musketeers got off to a strong start with the premiere drawing 9.3 million viewers to become BBC’s biggest new drama launch in two years. Ratings subsequently dipped, with the finale this past Sunday averaging 3.9 million viewers.

“This series is all about passion, romance, heroism and action,” says the series’ scribe Adrian Hodges.

Cabrera will portray one of the titular Musketeers, alongside The Hour’s Tom Burke and the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Howard Charles. The Hour’s Peter Capaldi will play the shadowy Cardinal Richelieu and The BorgiasLuke Pasqualiano has been cast as D’Artagnan.
