NBC set an 8 p.m. March 15 date for the two-hour premiere of its "magic realism" drama series Kings, which will air Sundays.

Kings comes from executive producer Michael Green (NBC's Heroes) and tells the story of a modern-day monarchy, based on the biblical story of King David. The series is an epic story of greed and power, war and romance, forbidden loves and secret alliances—and a young hero who rises to power.

Kings stars Ian McShane, Chris Egan, Sebastian Stan, Susanna Thompson, Allison Miller, Wes Studi, Eamonn Walker and Dylan Baker. The show is produced by Universal Media Studios and is executive-produced by Green, Erwin Stoff and Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend), who also directed the two-hour premiere.
