Oscar®-winning actor Jeremy Irons stars in the epic drama series as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of the Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power in Renaissance-era Italy. The series is created and executive produced by Oscar®-winning director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game), who is directing the first two episodes.
THE BORGIAS is a complex, unvarnished portrait of one of history's most intriguing and infamous dynastic families. The series begins as Rodrigo schemes his way into the position of Pope, causing him, his two Machiavellian sons Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance.
Composer Trevor Morris, fresh from four seasons on The Tudors, weaves a thrilling sonic tapestry for another notorious European family.
THE BORGIAS premieres Sunday, April 3rd with a special 2-hour pilot, only on SHOWTIME®.
