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.
With Caesar leading his legions against Pompey, Mark Antony is left to govern Rome, much to the alarm of the patricians who must bear the brunt of Antony’s new policies. Evander’s disappearance causes even more divisions within Vorenus’ family. Octavian’s education takes a new twist as he faces a rite of passage. With news of disaster in Caesar’s campaigns, Atia attempts to hedge her family’s future by attempting to scheme with Antony against Caesar, with disastrous results, and begins to wonder if reconciliation with Servilia might not be wise. An ambassador brings Antony offers from Pompey, and he must choose whether to trust to Caesar’s fate, or betray a friend. Vorenus and Niobe find intimacy together in the brief time before Antony’s legions sail for Greece, and Pullo discovers that blasphemy has its consequences. Octavian is sent away to school because Atia feels that Rome is not safe for men of the Julii.
