Check Out the New Trailer for Showtime’s ‘The Borgias’

Costume dramas featuring sex, violence, intrigue and political machinations are always welcome if well done. This new one from Showtime called The Borgias and we’ve got a trailer for it right here.

The Borgias is set in Renaissance Italy and tells the story of the crime family’s rise to power and their eventual decline. It features Jeremy Irons, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Derek Jacobi and Joanne Whalley. It’s produced by Michale Hirst and Neil Jordan and many of the episodes are directed by Jordan as well.

Looks pretty interesting to us. Kind of like The Tudors set in Italy — which makes sense considering Hirst’s involvement. It could be cool and we’ll be tuning in.

Showtime hasn’t set an air date for the series as of yet but we’ll let you know when they do. In the meantime, take a look at the trailer after the jump.
