BorgiaThe international series Borgia, which aired through Netflix’s Instant Streaming service, has the same inspiration as Showtime’s TV show The Borgias.

The historical series follows exploits of the Borgia family, whose patriarch, Rodrigo Borgia (John Doman, TV’s Rizzoli & Isles), is a powerful and greedy Pope during the time of the Renaissance. Rodrigo controls the church to gain power for his family, including his three sons (Mark Ryder of Robin Hood, Stanley Weber of Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Adam Misik) and daughter (Isolda Dychauk, Faust). Together, the Borgia emerge as the ultimate crime family.

The show was created by Tom Fontana, who won three Emmy Awards for Homicide: Life On the Streets and St. Elsewhere.

The three-disc DVD contains all 12 hour-long episodes of the first season of Borgia, plus a making-of featurette.
