'Da Vinci's Demons' to premiere on Starz
The drama will be written by David Goyer, co-writer of "Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight Returns" and the upcoming Superman reboot, "Man of Steel."
"Da Vinci's Demons," according to the network, follows the "untold" story of the world's greatest genius during his raucous youth in Renaissance Florence. The 25-year-old title character is an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist who begins not only to see the future, but also to invent it.
The series, the first to be produced under the multi-year agreement reached last summer between Starz and BBC Worldwide Productions, is scheduled to debut in 2013.
