"Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" (Starz) is the six-part prequel to the hit series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand."

Spartacus wasn't the first champion of the arena. Many men lived and died on the sands before him. "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" brings to life the story of Gannicus, the first gladiator to become Champion of Capua.

"Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" focuses on the House of Batiatus, in the days before Spartacus arrived. Hannah's Batiatus is not yet the head of the family, or the ludus. Gannicus is the undisputed lead gladiator in the Ludus, but in the class-conscious world of ancient Capua, the House of Batiatus still hasn't earned the respect of local society, or the right for its gladiators to fight in the championship bouts. Gannicus must survive the arena to not only keep his place in the ludus but also rise to become the champion in all of Capua.

The cast includes Jaime Murray and Marisa Ramirez in two central roles and Dustin Clare. Also returning to reprise their roles in the series, which takes place before Spartacus joins the ludus (gladiator training school): Lucy Lawless (Lucretia), John Hannah (Batiatus), Peter Mensah (Oenomaus) and Manu Bennett (Crixus). Andy Whitfield (Spartacus), will appear briefly in the prequel, and rejoin the show in season 2.

The series is produced by Rob Tapert, Sam Raimi, Joshua Donen and Steven S. DeKnight.
