CW to air miniseries about search for Holy Grail

California — The CW network says it has acquired a miniseries about the search for the Holy Grail.

The cast of the four-hour project, Labyrinth, includes former Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown-Findlay, along with Vanessa Kirby, Sebastian Stan and John Hurt.

The miniseries centers on a 13th-century teenager and a modern woman, and their shared quest for the grail, the cup said to have been used by Jesus Christ.

Labyrinth is adapted from Kate Mosse's best-selling novel of the same name. An air date wasn't announced for the drama, which has appeared in Britain and elsewhere.

The network also said Wednesday it's adding two reality series to its schedule later this year: "Barber Battle," a competition series hosted by Cedric The Entertainer, and "Penn & Teller: Fool Us," in which aspiring magicians perform their best tricks for the comedy duo.

Airdates for the reality shows were not announced.
