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 nomadic Brutus and Cassius struggle to raise foreign money for an army, Mark Antony sets his sights on Gaul. Cicero delivers an in-absentia message to the Senate, and then throws his support to Octavian, the new Caesar. Meanwhile, Vorenus is in a battle of his own, having provoked an all-out gang war in the Aventine Collegium. At Atia’s villa, Octavia passes the hours getting intoxicated by hemp with a nouveau riche tradesman’s daughter, while Duro (Rafi Gavron), a duplicitous youth, looks for a chance to set Servilia’s deadly plan in motion.
