BBC America Developing Robin Hood Drama Series 'Nottingham': What if Robin Hood and his traditional nemesis, the Sheriff of Nottingham, were the same person? That is the premise of Nottingham, a Game Of Thrones reinvention of the classic mythology in the works at BBC America. . . . 
Described as a soapy class drama, Nottingham centers on the Sheriff of Nottingham whose wife is killed by King John’s men. When nobody is brought to justice, the Sheriff launches a one-man war against the Crown. By day, he remains the reviled Sheriff, loyal servant of the King, but by night he puts on a hood and, using the intelligence he gains from his office, attacks the King where it hurts the most — his coffers.

In recent days it seems more and more of movies we see and shows that are created are old ideas, changed and updated. It's the same thing that I say about "Did you see the movie, and read the book" - the world of the show is changed and won't ever be as we pictured or hoped to see in the book.

Many shows/movies are filmed for a modern audience (younger viewers?) and not always for the better!
