Empire

Show Summary

Empire is a historical mini-series set in 44 BC around the time Julius Caesar is assassinated. The show focuses on Octavius (Santiago Cabrera, Haven) , adopted son and nephew of Julius Caesar, and Tyrannus (Jonathan Cake, Inconceivable), a disgraced former gladiator who is sworn to protect Octavius. The mini-series started with a reported $50 million budget, and shrunk down to $32 million after the series was cut from eight down to six episodes, along with other cost-cutting. The show has faced numerous set-backs, including fire destroying sets. It was filmed entirely on location in Rome and South Central Italy.
