A joint production between HBO and the BBC, the epic series 'Rome' was created by John Milius, William Macdonald and Bruno Heller. The series is shot throughout Italy and boasts the largest standing film set in the world.

Half a century before the dawn of Christianity, Rome has become the wealthiest city in the world, a cosmopolitan metropolis of one million people — epicenter of a sprawling empire. Founded on principles of shared power and fierce personal competition, the Republic was created to prevent any one man from seizing absolute control. It is a society where soldiers can rise up from provincial commoners to become national heroes, even leaders of the Republic.

A richly layered look at history and the building of the Roman empire, Rome sets the stage for modern politics — infighting, corruption, party lines and the struggle to define collective values. An intimate drama of love and betrayal, masters and slaves, and husbands and wives, 'Rome' chronicles the epic times that saw the fall of a Republic and the creation of an empire.
