Charlize Theron's production company is developing a viking drama for ABC. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Clan is "a sweeping drama set in the Highlands of medieval Scotland, where the great clans battle one another — and the Viking invaders." Oh, we can see the muddy battle scenes already. Should the show make it to air, it would join the History Channel's upcoming drama Viking, because everyone wants in on Game of Thrones' mace-swinging, club-wielding, elaborately helmeted fun.
