David Goyer Delves Into Da Vinci’s Demons

Starz Entertainment has green-lit a new original adventure series titled Da Vinci’s Demons, written by David S. Goyer (Blade, Nolan’s Batman films), the eight-episode series is scheduled to begin production in early-2012. Da Vinci’s Demons is David Goyer’s historical fantasy, following the “untold” story of the world’s greatest genius during his raucous youth in Renaissance Florence. Brash and brilliant, the twenty five-year old da Vinci is an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist. As a free thinker, with intellect and talents that are almost superhuman, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time. He begins to not only see the future, but invent it. David Goyer commented, “Da Vinci was the original Renaissance man — a near-mythic figure that has world-wide appeal. After working with characters like Batman and Superman, it made a strange kind of sense for me to dive into the facts and legends swirling around his origins. This will be a show about secret histories, genius, madness, and all things profane. And I’m particularly excited that I get to do it on premium cable, where the story can be as dark and challenging and irreverent as it deserves to be. Starz and BBC Worldwide Productions have been nothing but supportive.” Starz is expected to air the worldwide broadcast premiere in 2013. BBC Worldwide will distribute the series internationally.
