"The Borgias" Season 3 on Showtime is a drama series based on the infamous Italian Renaissance family The Borgias. Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons stars in the epic drama series as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of The Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power within Renaissance-era Italy. Additionally, Academy Award-winning director Neil Jordan ("The Crying Game") created and executive produces the series. He also directed the first two episodes. Veteran film

and television writer/producer Michael Hirst, who created, wrote and executive produced Showtime's original series "The Tudors," serves as executive producer/writer.

"The Borgias" is a complex, unvarnished portrait of one of history's' most intriguing and infamous dynastic families. The series begins as the family's patriarch Rodrigo (Jeremy Irons), becomes Pope, propelling him, his two Machiavellian sons Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter, Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance. And all that power and influence eventually leads to their demise. As Machiavelli once said about his friends, the Borgias, "Politics have no relation to morals."

The series is produced as a Canadian-European Treaty co-production in a manner similar to the production of "The Tudors."
