The Borgias TV Show Trailer has premiered. The Borgias (2011) is being directed by Neil Jordan and stars Jeremy Irons, David Oakes, François Arnaud, Holliday Graingerand, and Joanne Whalley. The Borgias (2011)’s plot synopsis: ” Set in 15th century Italy at the height of the Renaissance, The Borgias chronicles the corrupt rise of patriarch Rodrigo Borgia (Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons) to the papacy, where he proceeds to commit every sin in the book to amass and retain power, influence and enormous wealth for himself and his family. The unbounded audacity of this original crime family went on to inspire Machiavelli’s The Prince and Mario Puzo’s The Godfather.” Derek Jacobi and Aidan Alexander also star in the upcoming The Borgias series. With The Tudors gone, The Borgias seems like a worthy replacement. I love the hypocrisy of the old Catholic Church and that The Borgias are so corrupt yet love each other in a twisted way. Watch The Borgias TV Show trailer (more like a long promo) below and leave your thoughts on it. The Borgias begins with a special two-hour premiere on Showtime on April 3, 2011 at 9 pm et/pt. Future original episodes will air on Sundays at 10:00 pm et/pt.
