In this off beat account of King Arthur's quest for the Grail, virtually every journey, battle or adventure is stopped dead in its tracks by the knights of the round table's most worldly traits : cowardice, greed, idiocy or misplaced chivalry. As a consequence, instead of epic adventures we are treated with the characters' pragmatic and anachronistic take on each and every event in the Grail legend, true to the purest sitcom tradition.

Did You Know?
This show came as a replacement for the hit sitcom Caméra café
(2001) (created by and featuring Yvan Le Bolloc'h
and Bruno Solo
) and is produced by the same company, CALT. This came about when Le Bolloc'h and Solo moved their characters from "Camera café" to the big screen and decided to end the TV series, leaving broadcaster M6's access prime time slot empty. Luckily for all involved Kaamelott proved also to be a hit. See more
