‘The Bor­gias’

TV Week - - FRONT PAGE -

The 10-episode first sea­son of “The Bor­gias” pre­mieres Sun­day night on Show­time. It’s a sump­tu­ous ac­count of a Span­ish fam­ily that stormed Rome dur­ing the Re­nais­sance — the time of Christo­pher Colum­bus, Da Vinci, Michelan­gelo and the Medi­cis. Ire­land’s Neil Jor­dan (“The Cry­ing Game,” “In­ter­view With the Vam­pire”) is cre­ator, ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer and writer (along with di­rec­tor for the two pre­miere episodes). Jeremy Irons stars, in his first TV role since “Brideshead Re­vis­ited” in 1981.
