A female-focused Robin Hood project is in development at the CW, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed. "Sherwood’ focuses on a young noblewoman who joins the band of Merry Men, the story reports.
The CW has given a script commitment to the project, which is set in the year 1072 and follows a young English noblewoman who wants to free her boyfriend — a serf who has been imprisoned by the Normans. She seeks help from Robin Hood and helps to reunite his group of Merry Men, the story says.
If the project moves forward, it could become the second drama on the CW about archers. The network has found success with "Arrow," an adaptation of DC Comics’ bow-and-arrow-wielding superhero, the story points out.
