Michael Hirst and Martin Scorsese working together on "The Caesars"

  • The Caesars’ tells the story of ancient Rome early rulers, beginning with the rise to power of the notorious Julius Caesar.

  • Hirst has already written the pilot and there are plans to start shooting in Italy next year.

  • This series will be a slightly new take because it will focus on Julius Caesar when he was younger and it will have that energy and vitality.
