‘THE VALIANT’ EPIC TV SERIES
ABOUT A FEMALE GLADIATOR
2nd book The Defiant is out next February
CW is, meanwhile, preparing an epic new series for us! As ‘Variety’ reports, they are looking to adapt Lesley Livingston‘s novel THE VALIANT into an epic TV show about a female gladiator! After they ended Reign last season it could be CW’s replacement in the genre of historical shows. The series would follow a Celtic princess on the run from an arranged marriage and a sheltered life who is captured and forced into slavery under Julius Caesar. She ends up training among the first wave of female Gladiators to compete in the Colosseum for fame, fortune and, ultimately, her freedom.
