We haven’t heard much about Showtime’s forthcoming series The Borgias since it was greenlit with Jeremy Irons (Die Hard with a Vengeance) leading the series back in January. But today the cable network released the first official trailer for the series which follows Rodrigo Borgia (Irons), head of the infamously corrupt Renaissance family and a man who, despite his unsavory reputation, became pope in 1492. Likely looking to capture the audience who loved The Tudors, this historical series seems to be full of erotic romance, corruption, period drama and elaborate costumes. After all, cable can never have too much sex, murder, betrayal and all those things that make humans a lovely little species. Check out the lengthy trailer after the jump.

    Here’s a tip to any actor cast as a non-Borgia: don’t brag too much. You’re character will be dead (most likely by poisoning) within three episodes. You’ve been warned.

    Will we get a cameo from Ezio and the rest of the Assassins?! Haha….inside joke there for Assassin’s Creed players. FYI for those not aware, the Borgia’s are the main villains in the game franchise.

    Ezio Auditore da Firenze does not approve.
