PlotDa Vinci's Demons is a Starz Original Series about the early life of Leonardo Da Vinci that is currently in production. An 8 episode first season is scheduled to premiere on the FX UK and Starz networks in 2013. The series is being written, produced, and partially directed by David S. Goyer (who is best known as a writer for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy), and has been described as historical fantasy that explores the untold story of da Vinci's life at the age of 25. The series mythology is also rumored to involve the mystery cult known as the Sons of Mithras. Goyer said, "this will be a show about secret histories, genius, madness and all things profane."
Cast"In a world where thought and faith are controlled, one man fights to set knowledge free.
The secret history of Leonardo Da Vinci's tantalizing life reveals a portrait of a young man tortured by a gift of superhuman genius. He is a heretic intent on exposing the lies of religion. An insurgent seeking to subvert an elitist society. A bastard son who yearns for legitimacy with his father.
He finds himself in the midst of a storm that has been brewing for centuries. A conflict between truth and lies, religion and reason, past and future. His aspirations are used against him by the opposing forces of the time—luring him into a game of seduction where those who despise his intellect need him most.
Leonardo must take up the fight against foes who use history to suppress the truth. A hero armed only with genius, Da Vinci stands alone against the darkness within, and the darkness without.
Facing an uncertain future, his quest for knowledge nearly becomes his undoing as he explores the fringes of his own sanity. Da Vinci throws himself into his genius and emerges as an unstoppable force that lifts an entire era out of darkness and propels it into light.
His story becomes a mirror into our own world, calling us all to join his fight to Free the Future."

Mij lijkt dit een hele goeie serie te worden.
En bereid je als vast maar voor want er zal net zoals bij Spartacus waarschijnlijk veel bloed vloeien en veel sex in voor komen het is en blijft namelijk een a Starz Original.
