NBC has acquired a script that centers on the Greek mythology tale Jason and the Argonauts, and plans shooting the entire project on green screen.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC won a bidding war for the story by Josh and Jonas Pate (Moonlight).

Jason and the Argonauts is best known as the 1963 film that featured the stop-motion animation work of Ray Harryhausen. If produced, NBC is considering shooting the entire project on green screen, meaning "Argonauts" would be a TV series that takes place on a ship at sea, but that doesn't go near the water. Sci Fi Channel used the method to produce its new series Sanctuary.
