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.
Pompey must stall for time, and his supporters urge him to make peace with Caesar. Caesar and Antony must balance what is expedient with how their actions will appear to the people. Atia’s jealousy of Servilia leads to actions that spell humiliation for Caesar and despair for Servilia. A sudden reversal of fortune forces Vorenus to choose whether it is to the legions or the underworld of Rome that he will sell his integrity. Servilia’s rage turns her onto a dark path of revenge. Niobe faces the possibility of having to lose her son and have her secret fall into the hands of those who do not know what to do with it. Pullo is retained to educate Octavian, but it is questionable as to who will teach and who will learn.
