Glorious news arrive from Imperial Rome today, spylings! We are getting a new Ancient Rome set TV series! After bringing us Catherine the Great, Jamestown and Britannia, Sky is preparing a ten part historical saga DOMINA following the life and the extraordinary rise of Livia Drusilla, the mother of the emperor Tiberius, who overcame adversity to become the most powerful woman in the world. As Hollywood Reporter writes, the shooting already started this week in Italy. Kasia Smutniak takes the lead role of  Drusilla, with Liam Cunningham playing Livius, Livia’s father, and Isabella Rossellini as Balbina, an early enemy. The cast also includes Matthew McNulty as the future emperor Gaius, Christine Bottomley as Scribonia, Colette Tchantcho as Antigone, Ben Batt as Agrippa, Enzo Cilenti as Tiberius Claudius Nero, while Claire Forlani plays Claudia Octavia. Oscar winning costume designer Gabriella Pescucci is doing the

    Domina
created and written by Simon  Burke, follows Livia’s journey from a naïve young girl whose world crumbles in the wake of Julius Caesar’s assassination, to Rome’s most powerful and influential Empress, driven by a deep desire to avenge her father and secure power for her sons. Livia and her peers navigate their way through a brutal society by means of strategy, conspiracy, seduction and murder. This is a visceral and authentic family saga, grounded in historical accuracy and bringing to life the incredible true stories of the women who would create one of the most enduring and fascinating dynasties of all time.

Dezzy's History Lesson
As a daughter of a Roman magistrate, she will become the wife of the Roman emperor Augustus throughout his reign, as well as his adviser. She

was the mother of the emperor Tiberius, paternal grandmother of the emperor Claudius, paternal great grandmother of the emperor Caligula, and maternal great great grandmother of the emperor Nero. Although her marriage with Augustus produced only one pregnancy, which miscarried, through her sons by her first husband, Tiberius and Drusus, she is a direct ancestor of all of the Julio Claudian emperors as well as most of the extended Julio Claudian imperial family. It is believed that she was a thoroughly Machiavellian, scheming political mastermind, determined never to allow republican governance again.

    1. I'm super thrilled, we haven't had any Roman series since Spartacus, methinks, hope it will be naughty as that one was!

  3. This is so interesting! I would definitely tune in. Although, I'm scratching my head wondering why I haven't heard of her before, yet I've heard of her entire lineage.
