BRAY, Ireland, July 21 (UPI) -- Principal photography has begun at Ireland's Ardmore Studios on the new romantic adventure series "Camelot," Starz said Wednesday.

The show is a fresh telling of the classic King Arthur legend. It stars Jamie Campbell Bower, Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green, Claire Forlani, Tamsin Egerton and Peter Mooney.

Filming is set to continue until December on the Irish-Canadian co-production, which is tentatively scheduled to premiere next spring on Starz in the United States and the CBC in Canada.

Chris Chibnall, who has worked on TV's "Life on Mars" and "Torchwood," is show-runner and writer on "Camelot."

Principal photography is taking place in Ireland, with post-production and visual effects to be completed in Toronto.
