Starz has debuted the trailer for their upcoming take on the Spartacus legend, “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” and just to keep it interesting, has already announced that it will be renewed for a second season. That move is part shaking the balls for advertising and part cost-saving since it means that they won’t interrupt production between seasons.
Eh, looks like a video game ripping off Gladiator’s plot and 300’s technique, but it has a few interesting tidbits that keep it vaguely interesting. First, Sam Raimi is one of the executive producers. Second, Lucy Lawless is the female lead. Third, Starz is pushing that it features some of the most graphic sex scenes ever broadcast on television.
We can only hope that Kirk Douglas will make a cameo in the inevitable orgy scene.
The show premiers on January 22nd. (source: SciFi Wire)
