"The Borgias" are mentioned in TV Guide, March 7-13, 2011, p. 14. A new show premiering April 3rd, at 9pm EST/8pm CST, on Showtime.

"Tony Soprano had nothing on Pope Alexander VI. Oscar winner Jeremy Irons stars as the despotic Spanish patriarch Rodrigo Borgia, who bribed his way into the top job at the vatican in 1492. Expect lots of sex, toture and poisonings but also some intense family devotion. "The minute Rodrigo becomes Pope Alexander, the Borgias come under attack because of the power they've acquired," says exec producer Neil Jordan. "They are decadent, salacious monsters, yet you'll find yourself rooting for them." Naturally there's nepotism galore, too. Rodrigo's lusty, pyschotic son cesare (Francois Arnaud) is appointed cardinal, while favored son Juan (David Oakes) heads up the papal armies. "There's so much family drama," says Jordan, "the series writes itself!""
