News Image
The Bottle Yard Studios has welcomed the production of US Television series Galavant as work begins on its second season. The show, made by Disney's ABC Studios, has returned to the UK, with filming commencing this week at the Bristol-based studio.

ABC Studios, the television production division of Disney-ABC Television group, chose The Bottle Yard Studios to base production of Galavant's pilot episode in early 2014, and went on to film the full series at the Studios last summer. The new 10-part series will film for 16 weeks in purpose-built sets in The Bottle Yard's Tank House 3 space.

"We are thrilled to be returning for a second season of Galavant, and we're very excited to be shooting again at The Bottle Yard Studios," said Writer/Executive Producer Kat Likkel. "We look forward to many more musical adventures at the studios and in the beautiful countryside surrounding Bristol."

Fiona Francombe, Site Director of The Bottle Yard Studios, added: "It's wonderful to welcome the Galavant team back to The Bottle Yard for Series Two. To have a high profile US production featuring A-list talent choosing to locate their shoot with us once is a major milestone for the Studios. To have them return for a second series the following year is a ringing endorsement for what we have to offer to overseas productions here; good international flight links, close proximity to London, access to a wide range of locations across the South West and Wales, a strong local crew base and a responsive service from our team of Studio staff, all of whom are ex-production themselves and so fully understand the needs of a demanding shoot."

Screenwriter/executive producer Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Tangled, Cars) reunites with the Broadway and Hollywood award-winning musical team – composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid, Tangled) for Galavant.

Having discovered the dark side of Madalena, the series' dashing hero's adventures continue as he embarks on an unlikely bromance with King Richard and fights to rekindle the romance with his true love Isabella.

Cast for the new series includes 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. Dan Fogelman, Alan Menken, Glenn Slater, Chris Koch, Kat Likkel and John Hoberg serve as executive producers. Abbey C Studios Ltd. produces Galavant for ABC Studios.

Galavant's first series was made at The Bottle Yard Studios between August and October 2014. The 10-week shoot filmed at Studios in purpose-built sets and on location around Bristol and Wales, and broadcast on ABC America in January 2015. In addition to main cast members returning for series two, series one featured guest stars Rutger Hauer, John Stamos, Hugh Bonneville, Ricky Gervais and Weird Al Yankovic.
