Netflix is here to give Wolfgang Petersen a run for his money. The company and BBC One’s Trojan War epic “Troy: Fall Of A City” begins streaming next month on Netflix, and the official trailer has debuted promising tons of swords and sandals action. But will the show be a “Game of Thrones” success or another “Marco Polo” for Netflix? That’s surely the question on executives’ minds.

“Troy: Fall Of A City” centers on the love story between Helen and Paris, which triggers a chain of events that threatens their families and the city of Troy. Louis Hunter (“The Fosters”) and Bella Dayne (“Humans”) star in the lead roles, with David Threfall as King Priam of Troy and Frances O’Connor as Hecuba, Queen of Troy.

The epic series premiers on Netflix April 6.
