For the past couple of years, if not actually more, Starz has been slowly but surely making a name for itself with its impressive offering in scripted programming. The network is preparing another surprise for fans, one for which it just premiered a brand new trailer.Check it out above.
The new series is called “Da Vinci’s Demons” and, whether you’re a history buff or simply don’t mind how facts can be twisted thanks to a little gimmick known as poetic license, it will most certainly be extremely good looking.
Tom Riley stars as the titular character, a “tortured genius” in “a world where thought and faith are controlled,” who “fights to set knowledge free.”
“[He] defies authority and throws himself into the future, forever changing the fate of mankind. From David S. Goyer co-writer of the Dark Knight Trilogy and Man of Steel, Da Vinci's Demons will reveal the hero behind the genius,” a brief synopsis of the series says.
