Notes:
Galavant is an American fairy tale-themed musical comedy television series created, written, and executive-produced by Dan Fogelman with co-executive producers Alan Menken, Glenn Slater (both also serving as songwriters and composers) and Chris Koch (who also serves as director) for ABC Studios. The series debuts on ABC during the 2014–15 television season. Season 1 has 8 episodes in total.

Rutger's character 'Kingsley' is the anointed successor to his father's rule and his very name reflects that. However, upon his father's death Kingsley refuses to claim the Sword of the King and to be crowned as the new lord of the realm. Instead he feels his fate belongs elsewhere and chooses the freedom to conquer, pillage and sow his wild oats in other lands. The responsibility of governing his father's kingdom then falls on to his younger brother Richard. In a show of contempt for his sibling, Kingsley grabs the Royal Sword just before it is officially handed to Richard. He taunts his brother by wishing him good luck before leaving with the sword to find his destiny...
