Rome is a historical drama television series created by John Milius, William J. MacDonald, and Bruno Heller.
Rome is set in the 1st century BC, during Ancient Rome’s transition from Republic to Empire.
As the wars in Gaul finally come to an end, Caesar is faced with both triumph and tribulation. On the heels of his victory comes news of his daughter’s death. Rewarded with the adulation of the people, he also garners the enmity of powerful opponents and former friends. In Rome, Pompey the Great must balance honour and politics as he is urged to betray an ancient rival and recent friend. Atia of the Julii tries to steer her family on the dangerous path between the growing divisions of power, and in the Gallic countryside, two unlikely allies must reclaim that which Caesar has lost.
