Holy Katniss: CW's New Robin Hood TV Series Will Have a Female Star

Sherwood is a new hour-long CW series in development that's based on the story of Robin Hood — but with a young woman in the lead role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will be set in 1072 England and "revolves around a young noblewoman who sets out to free her serf boyfriend, who has been wrongfully imprisoned by ruthless Norman occupiers." Hmm, a strong heroine, archery and class clashes? Sounds positively Hunger Games-esque. The real question, of course, is whether or not anyone will sing "Oo De Lally."
