David and Goliath…Present Day

An new series coming to NBC, Kings will tell the story of David and Saul set in a fictionalized, present day “kingdom” of Gilboa. 

From the NBC web site…

“Kings” takes place in a modern-day kingdom named Gilboa, and its shining metropolitan capital of Shiloh. It is ruled by King Benjamin Silas, the nation’s much-loved monarch, who unified several warring territories to found Gilboa many years ago. They have since built a proud and prosperous nation. While not a perfect society, the kingdom is a beacon of hope and idealism.

But the dark clouds of war continue to rumble in the north, where the forces of enemy nation Gath are massing to invade, and threaten to destroy all that King Silas has created…

That is, until a young soldier named David slays a fearsome Goliath tank, rallying the nation… and turning the tide of history.

Color me curious.  Bold shades of curious.  And file it under “damn, I wish I had thought of that.”
