Kings NBC Remake, spinoff or sequel? More of a reinterpretation, although the story of King David has been put on film numerous times, with actors ranging from Gregory Peck to Richard Gere having played him. Source material: The Bible. What's new: "Heroes" writer-producer Michael Green has placed the story in a contemporary world and will focus on the young David's (Christopher Egan) relationship with the king (Ian McShane) and the king's son (Sebastian Stan), whose life David saves during wartime. What's not: Within that framework, you can expect the series to follow the path of the biblical story.
