Starring Tom Riley as the title character, Da Vinci’s Demons is a historical fantasy, following the ‘untold’ story of the world’s greatest genius during his turbulent youth in Renaissance Florence. Brilliant and passionate, the twenty-five year old Leonardo Da Vinci is an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist. As a free thinker, with intellect and talents that are almost superhuman, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time. He begins to not only see the future, but invent it.
The series also stars Laura Haddock and Lara Pulver.
Filming began this summer on Da Vinci’s Demons. The eight episode series will debut in 2013.
