The Canuck miniseries The Last Templar has a date with NBC after the US network signed on to simulcast with Global in December.

Global Television announced yesterday that NBC will simulcast the Canadian miniseries The Last Templar in December.

Based on Raymond Khoury’s debut novel, the adventure stars Mira Sorvino as an archeologist drawn into the lost secrets of the medieval Templar Knights. Victor Garber (Alias) also stars. Production gets underway next month in Montreal and Morocco under executive producer Michael Prupas, of Montreal’s Muse Entertainment (Human Trafficking, Durham County).

‘Global is thrilled to bring this incredible story to Canadian audiences – and delighted that Americans will also have the chance to see it on NBC,’ says Canwest EVP of content Barbara Williams.
