The Borgias

With the fourth and final season of The Tudors kicking off in April, Showtime is getting ready to start production on another period drama, this one set in Renaissance Italy. The Borgias will begin filming this Spring, with an eye toward an early 2011 debut. The show will follow the notoriously corrupt Italian family, which, after The Sopranos, will finally destroy any positive image of Italians anyone may still have had.

Showtime has already ordered 10 episodes of the show, which will be written and executive produced by Michael Hirst, who’s served in the same capacity on The Tudors.
