Los Angeles, CA - April 4, 2017 Following the success of Versailles, Ovation TV, America's only arts network, continues to showcase premium scripted drama series. The network has acquired the basic cable rights to another impressive costume drama: The Borgias. Originally aired on the Showtime network, the series stars Oscar(R) winner Jeremy Irons in his Golden Globe(R)-nominated role as Pope Alexander VI, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of the infamous Borgia dynasty, who builds an empire by bribing, buying and muscling his way into the papacy. All three seasons of The Borgias will air on Ovation TV on Saturdays at 10pm ET, starting Saturday, May 27, 2017.
The epic saga of The Borgias, a complex, unvarnished portrait of one of history's most infamous dynastic families, was created by Academy Award(R)-winner and Emmy(R) nominee Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire). The series also stars Holliday Granger, Fran�ois Arnaud, David Oakes, Joanne Whalley, Lotte Verbeek, Sean Harris, Gina McKee, Peter Sullivan, Julian Bleach and Colm Feore.
Two episodes will air back-to-back every Saturday night. See the following link for episode descriptions for all three seasons: http://www.ovationtv.com/ovation-tv-presents-the-borgias/
