“Avengers” star Jeremy Renner will executive produce and likely appear in “Knightfall,” a new historical drama on History.

The cable channel has given the project a 10-episode straight-to-series order. Renner is expected to guest star, with additional casting to be announced later.

Put into development in March, the series by Don Handfield (“Kill the Messenger”) and Richard Raynor (“L.A. Without a Map”) chronicles the events that led to the downfall and persecution of the Knights Templar on Friday the 13th, 1307. Here’s the official description:

The Knights Templar’s heroic exploits in the Crusades that have fascinated for centuries, inspiring popular stories from Knights of the Round Table to the Jedi Knights of “Star Wars.” “Knightfall” reveals the great secrets protected by the Templars and tells the story of faith, loyalty and brotherhood that help sustain these warriors on the battlefield, and the dark events that would forever sear the infamous date of Friday the 13th into the world’s psyche.

“Knightfall” will join “Vikings” on History’s dramatic slate.

    I tried Vikings but couldn’t get into it. But I’ll check out Knightfall because I always liked the history and mysteries surrounding the Knights Templar.

    If I can make a recco. How long did you give Vikings? It takes at least 3 or 4 eps to get properly going, but once it does it is absolutely enthralling. WELL worth your time, but it takes a bit to get there.

    Cannot wait to see this. I adore Vikings, and the Crusades and the Templars are one of my favorite eras and sects. This could be amazing!
