In August 2010, the SKY1 director of programs, Stuart Murphy, announced the commission of several new television series, including a 12-part multimillion-pound "Sinbad the Sailor." Impossible Pictures, a production company known for producing the ITV science fiction series "Primeval," was secured to produce the show. Murphy announced the series after wanting to shed Sky's reputation for broadcasting primarily foreign imports and "shifting the budget" to put "terrestrial levels of spend" behind the shows. The remake was also intended to have "the ambition of American television series 'Lost'" and the pace of '24.' See more »
Brilliant series indeed really enjoying it too
I love this TV series. But i'm disappointing about one thing. There should be a female character as a Sinbad's fiancée. Like Robin Hood and Marian. Should include some romance for the story. Rina is not enough for that. That's the part i'm missing in this drama. I was ready to go a long way to enjoy this show, but even leaving aside the not so great stories, I cannot ignore the unbelievable inaccuracies. Apparently in ancient Persia they had plimsoles, high heels, twenties style costumes and roulette! Come on guys, the show could be so much better, but you'll have to try a lot harder. Brilliant series indeed really enjoying it too.
