CW Targets Robin Hood Series With Female Twist

Matt Webb Mitovich

The original “Arrow,” Robin Hood, may be heading to The CW.

The fifth network has given a pilot script order to Sherwood, a period drama set in Vancouver England circa 1072. Per The Hollywood Reporter, the story follows a young noblewoman who unwittingly allies with that Robin Hood and his band of jolly gents as she aims to find and set free her serf boyfriend, who has been wrongfully abducted by Norman occupiers.

So in that respect, it’s like that other bow-and-arrow show, Revolution.
