A message from your king. November 2, 2011 8:42 PMSubscribe
What would happen if a monarchy ruled in part of America? With a monarch divinely crowned? And then a soldier, fighting in the trenches against your hated enemy, saves the king's son and is thrust into court politics? If you flimed it all in New York City, you'd get Kings, a short-lived (March 2009 - July 2009) television series that aired on NBC. It starred Ian McShane as King Silas and you can watch all 13 episodes of it on Hulu or NBC's website. Kings received very little in the way of direct promotion. Most of its advertisements were meant to be viral, but failed to generate the necessary hype. There were a series of posters that appeared in NYC and Los Angeles, and a couple of televisionspots.
