On tonight’s episode of the new Starz’ TV series Da Vinci’s Demons, Lorenzo orders Piero da Vinci to defend his estranged son in court; Leonardo surprises the corrupt judge during a performance for visiting royalty; the Turk visits Leonardo at his workshop.
Written by David S. Goyer, the series follows the “untold” story of Leonardo Da Vinci: the genius during his early years in Renaissance Florence. As a 25-year old artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time as he begins to not only see the future, but invent it.
Da Vinci’s Demons is about Leonardo da Vinci’s early life, scheduled to premiere on Starz networks. The series marks the first collaborative effort between Starz and BBC Worldwide under a new co-production agreement formed after the production of Torchwood: Miracle Day. Described as an historical fantasy, the series mythology is also rumored to involve the mystery cult known as the Sons of Mithras. Eight episodes of the series have been ordered by Starz, with the series premiering on April 12, 2013.
Da Vinci’s Demons episode 5 “The Tower” airs Friday, May 10, at 10 pm on Starz. Spoiler video below:
