3 Sneak Peeks From ABC’s Comedy Drama “Galavant”

BY Jennifer Griffin

Published 7 years ago

ABC’s fantasy dramas are all about that happy ending, and Galavant, an ambitious, mildly irreverent musical comedy about to hit the air over the new year is no different.

Part Disney musical, part Monthy Python and definitely all tongue in cheek, the new series from screenwriter/executive producer Dan Fogelman (of Tangled fame), Broadway and Hollywood musical team-composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Glenn Slater (also Tangled) tells a a tale of lost love, revenge, a whole lot of singing and some comedy farts.

Once upon a time, a dashing hero, Galavant lost the love of his life, Madalena to the evil but slightly dumb King Richard. Now, Gal is ready to take revenge and restore his “happily ever after.” But it won’t be without a few twists and turns along the way.

Galavant stars Joshua Sasse as Galavant, Timothy Omundson as King Richard, Vinnie Jones as Gareth, Mallory Jansen as Madalena, Karen David as Isabella and Luke Youngblood as Sid.

Catch 3 sneak peeks at ABC’s cheeky musical comedy, along with the official synopses for the first two episodes, below.

Galavant premieres January 4, 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET on ABC.

 

“Pilot” (8:00-8:30 p.m., ET) – When heroic, charming and handsome Sir Galavant loses his true love, the beautiful Madalena, to evil King Richard’s wealth and power, he falls into a deep and drunken despair. Just as our hero hits rock bottom, Princess Isabella shows up with a quest to save her kingdom, defeat the despicable King Richard, and provide an opportunity for Galavant to reclaim Madalena. Galavant is off to become a hero again and strike a blow for true love…but first, Galavant has to fit into his old hero pants.

 

“Joust Friends” (8:30-9:00 p.m. ET) – Galavant enters a jousting tournament against a boastful rival, Sir Jean Hamm (guest star John Stamos), to test his return to heroic form (and win some much-needed traveling money and a really nice rooster). But it quickly becomes clear that Galavant is a long shot to win. Meanwhile, King Richard asks Gareth to help him become a bit more macho so that Madalena won’t despise him quite so much.
