Series: Galavant
Galavant is a musical-comedy series set to air on ABC during the midseason break during winter 2014/2015 (bridging the gap between season halves of Once Upon a Time). The series follows the exploits of the knight Galavant, who lost his true love to the evil King Richard. Despondent, Galavant is approached by Isabella, the princess of Valencia. Her kingdom has come under attack, and she wants Galavant to liberate it. Problem is, Galavant has spent the time since his ordeal drinking and sleeping. Along the way are laughs, epic battles, and songs.

Tropes present include:

  • Fairy Tale: Described as a "musical comedy fairy tale" in the trailer.
  • Heroic BSOD: Galavant undergoes a prolonged one of these thanks to booze and King Richard.
  • The Musical: Unusual for the TV format, every episode is essentially a mini-musical.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: In his backstory, Galavant was caught quite off guard when he did the standard heroic wedding interruption, only to find his supposed true love would rather have the fame and fortune Richard offers her.
