Ronald D. Moore, the mastermind behind resurrecting Battlestar Galactica for cable television, is bringing the 2001 Heath Ledger movie A Knight's Tale to ABC as an hour-long drama.

The film followed 14th Century jousters, and was known for its rock-laden soundtrack that went against the grain of its genre. This new series will center on William Thatcher, a character originated by Heath Ledger, who is a peasant posing as a knight.

The series is planned to stay true to its premise, and its rock and roll structure, which might just turn this into a medieval Glee. Ronald D. Moore is writing the pilot script, as well as executive producing.
