A strange and bewildering family, the Borgias. Eleven cardinals of the Holy Roman Catholic Church. Three popes. A queen of England. A saint. A family with long tentacles, beginning in the Fourteenth Century in Spain, and reaching through the history of Fifteenth and Sixteenth Century Italy, Spain, and France. Greed, murder, incest. And --- strangely --- piety.

The Borgias is a intriguing tale set during the Renaissance-era. Rodrigo Borgia played by Oscar wing actor Jeremy Irons who was elected Pope in 1492, taking the name Alexander VI. With his two sons Cesare and Juan and daughter Lucrezia become the most powerful family in all of Italy. In this complex drama The Borgias Will show a portrait of the many crimes the family have been accused of. Generally on considerable evidence, including adultery, simony, theft, rape, bribery, incest, and murder.

Academy award winning director Neil Jordan (The crying Game) will act as executive producer to the Showtime original.
