Da Vinci's Demons 2013

The more I see from the upcoming series by David S. Goyer, Da Vinci’s Demons; the more I really want to see the show. It’s looking to make Da Vinci as an almost superhero detective, out of the historical figure. The show will revolve around Da Vinci’s life and his pursuit of breaking convention in a time where Christianity weighs out against science and philosophy.

The featurette below focuses on star, Tom Riley, as the titular character. We get a behind-the-scenes look at what makes this character the adventurer that we know very little about, despite his huge advancements in science and warfare that we still use today. Check out the featurette and a teaser for the tv show below.

The show will air on the Starz network on April 12th. It will also star: Laura Haddock, Lara Pulver, Allan Corduner,  Blake Ritson.
