Check out a quickie 30-second promo for “Blade” and “Batman” writer David Goyer’s latest venture, the original TV series “Da Vinci’s Demons”, which will star Tom Riley as the do-it-all genius Leonardo Da Vinci. The show will chronicle Da Vinci during his ’20s as a “artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist” who bucks the system and “invents” the future, whatever that means. The promo doesn’t offer up any footage, so it’s anybody’s guess what we’re getting here in terms of visuals, tone, and what have you.
In a world where thought and faith are controlled, Leonardo Da Vinci fights to set knowledge free. The tortured genius defies authority and hurls himself into the future, forever changing the fate of mankind.
“Da Vinci’s Demons” also stars Andrew Brooke, Gregg Chillin, Elliot Cowan, Laura Haddock, and Elliot Levey.
Da Vinci does what Da Vinci do on Starz in the Spring of 2013.
