Starz has released the first teaser for Da Vinci’s Demons, tying the untold story of the famous polymath to the supposed falsification of history.
The footage-free teaser delivers the following warning, seemingly narrated by da Vinci himself:
“History is a lie, that has been honed like a weapon by people who have suppressed the truth…centuries from now, your own history will be suppressed.”
Intrigued? Check it out below:
Da Vinci’s Demons is a historical fantasy that follows the “untold” story of the world’s greatest genius during his raucous youth in Renaissance Florence. Brash and brilliant, the 25-year-old da Vinci is an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist. As a free thinker, with intellect and talents that are almost superhuman, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time. He begins to not only see the future, but invent it. “Da Vinci was the original Renaissance man — a near-mythic figure that has world-wide appeal.”
Arrives Spring 2013 on Starz.
