Borgias could succeed 'Tudors' on Showtime
Showtime is eyeing a prospective successor series to The Tudors, to be produced by writer-helmer Neil Jordan in conjunction with DreamWorks Television and Robert Zemeckis’ ImageMovers banner, according to Variety. Jordan already has a script — and a bible — penned for a historical costume drama that would follow the Borgias, the infamous Italian noble family that ran amok during the Renaissance. A similalr 12-episode series about the Borgia clan in Europe, under French and German banners, has been awaiting its own greenlight. The fourth and final season of The Tudors airs on Showtime this spring.
