Description

The House of Batiatus is on the rise, basking in the glow of its infamous champion Gannicus (Dustin Clare of Underbelly), whose skill with a sword is matched only by his thirst for wine and women. These are the times a young Batiatus (John Hannah of The Mummy) has been waiting for. Poised to overthrow his father and take control, he’ll freely betray anyone to ensure his gladiators are in the highest demand. And he’ll have his loyal and calculating wife Lucretia (Lucy Lawless of TV's Xena: Warrior Princess) by his side for every underhanded scheme, drawing on the brazen talents of her seductive friend Gaia (Jaime Murray of Hu$tle) when it counts. Together, they will stop at nothing to deceive the masses, seize power, and bleed Capua dry in this audacious prequel to Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Spartacus: Gods of the Arena is produced by Starz Media with Executive Producers Rob Tapert (The Grudge, TV's Xena: Warrior Princess), Sam Raimi (Spider-man, The Evil Dead), Joshua Donen (The Quick and the Dead), and Steven S. DeKnight (TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
