Munich, November 16, 2011. SevenOne International has sold the two-time Emmy-winning series “The Borgias” to Swiss Free TV channel 3+. “The Borgias” is a production of the US TV channel Showtime and features top-notch actors including Jeremy Irons.
Bodo Braun, Sales Director German-speaking Countries and Turkey of SevenOne International, comments, “This is an exciting TV event produced in the U.S. with an A-list cast. We’re confident this fresh new series will fit in very well with 3+’s young profile.”
Sex. Power. Murder. Amen. “The Borgias” from the creative mind of Academy Award winner Neil Jordan portraits the sordid saga of one of the most remarkable and legendary families in history. Set in 15th century Italy at the height of the Renaissance, “The Borgias” chronicles the corrupt rise of patriarch Rodrigo Borgia (Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons) to the papacy, where he proceeds to commit every sin in the book to amass and retain power, influence and enormous wealth for himself and his family.
