THIS EIGHT PART EPIC DRAMA
is a highly topical story, which follows the life and the extraordinary rise of Livia Drusilla, who overcame adversity to become the most powerful woman
in the world. The story 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. She will soon discover
that seizing power is not enough: you must be able to keep
everyone else wants it. This is a visceral and authentic family saga,
grounded in historical accuracy and bringing to life the incredible true
of the women who would create one of the most enduring and
fascinating dynasties of all time. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think.
