Five of the world's foremost medievalists were hired as special consultants, including Sir Ramsay Corningwall of Oxford University. A full-sized Norman cathedral was built to conform in every detail with precise specifications established by Sir Ramsay. Casting directors took excruciating pains to ensure that only the finest actors who could speak in appropriate accent, tone, and cadence were cast in even the most minor roles.
Knave of Scones premiered on September 12, 2013 and was cancelled the next day.
Somebody had forgotten to tell the producer it took place in Omaha, Nebraska.
Okay, so Knave of Scones turned out to be a show about a guy who bakes lousy pastries in the Midwest. That doesn't mean it wasn't funny! Anyway, it represents my 123 word story based on the prompt above for this week's Friday Fictioneers.
More takes on the very same prompt from the other Friday Fictioneers are available by clicking here. Some will no doubt transport you back to the days of twelfth century cathedrals and castles and knights and lords and ... or at least back to the days of TV shows that don't get axed after just one episode!
Say, why don't we remake Knave of Scones with Kevin James and a laugh track?
