As excited as we were for 'Battlestar Galactica' creator Ron Moore to return for Syfy's upcoming original series 'Helix,' it seems the prolific sci-fi vet has an even higher-profile gig at Starz! The cable network has officially issued a series order to time travel romance 'Outlander,' based on the popular Diana Gabaldon books of the same name, but just how involved will Ron Moore be?
Starz's 'Da Vinci's Demons' returns from its Memorial Day marathon tonight with the all-new episode, "The Hierophant." In this penultimate installment, Da Vinci takes unconventional measures to infiltrate the Vatican while Giuliano Medici comes one step closer to uncovering Rome's spy. And we've got an exclusive clip of the sexy morning after between Guiliano and "Lady" Vanessa from tonight's episode!
Starz's 'Da Vinci's Demons' has delivered the action and sex we'd expect from this sort of cable show, but as we move into the back half of the first season, we're hoping tonight's episode "The Tower" starts to put the pieces in place for the finale. Will Leonard Da Vinci go to the new world? Will Lucrezia get caught as the spy? We shall see.
Pirates may not be perfectly in season these days, but Starz's 'Black Sails' will almost certainly beat NBC's 'Crossbones' to the punch. The pay-cable network has officially set a January 2014 premiere for its Michael Bay-produced series, adapting the early days of Robert Louis Stevenson's 'Treasure Island,' but will 'Black Sails' prove to be a bountiful haul, or an empty vessel? Get the latest on Michael Bay's new Starz series inside!
Sad as we were to see 'Spartacus' bite the sand earlier this year, we took great comfort in both the possibility of a spin-off and series creator Steven S. DeKnight's interstellar war drama 'Incursion' potentially moving forward at Starz. Now, reports have emerged suggesting DeKnight's 'Incursion' has cooled in the pre-production phase, but does that mean Starz will pass on the series?
We’re now four episodes in on ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ and the show has proved that it’s definitely worth watching. Though it fits into the rough mold of most pay-cable shows by featuring action and a soupcon of nudity, Tom Riley's Leonardo Da Vinci is a fascinating character, and the season (which is now half over) is building well. Tonight's episode "The Magician" continues the adventure and intrigue.
‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ has, so far, promised a lot and mostly delivered on the premise of Leonardo Da Vinci as fifteenth century bad-ass. He’s smart, he gets all the chicks, he can fight, and yet because he’s Leonardo Da Vinci, he’s still pretty likeable. And with an eight episode order for the first season, it’s likely the series is working much more as a mini-series than your standard issue episodic show, as each episode so far has done a good job of moving the ball forward. Tonight’s episode “The Prisoner” is more episodic than the previous episodes, but still engaging.
We knew Leonardo Da Vinci to be brilliant, but talk about speedy! This past Friday saw Starz highest-rated debut to date with the David S. Goyer-penned 'Da Vinci's Demons,' and the edgy cable network has wasted no time in locking down the re-invented inventor for another season. 'Da Vinci's Demons' season 2 will officially bow in 2014, but will anything prove different from the first time around?
