History will team with Vikings actorTravis Fimmel to create an anthology series featuring some of the most infamous anti-heroes throughout history.
The untitled scripted project, developed by Fimmel, will launch with a focus on 19th century outlaw Wyatt Earp, according to History. A+E Studios will produce the series in association with Atlas Entertainment and Imperative Entertainment.
“Travis is a remarkable actor and we’re honored to continue our relationship with him after his recent magnetic performance on Vikings,” said Arturo Interian, Senior Vice President, Scripted Programming, History in a statement. “Just as Travis brought a completely fresh and unexpected approach to his character Ragnar Lothbrok, this would be an unconventional portrayal of Earp like you’ve never seen. We intend to capture the violent spirit of the great Sergio Leone films through telling the true story of criminal turned lawman.”
