From Starz / Anchor Bay:
SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND"
was inspired by the actual slave of the Roman Republic, who in 73 BC led a slave revolt that grew to more than 120,000 fighters. Torn from his homeland and the woman he loves, Spartacus, a Thracian warrior captured by Romans, is enslaved into a gladiator training school owned by Batiatus (John Hannah) and his wife Lucretia (Lucy Lawless). He is forced to fight daily for his life against deadly foes, under the brutal whip of trainer Doctore (Peter Mensah). He is condemned to the brutal world of the arena where blood and death are primetime entertainment. But not all battles are fought upon the sands. Treachery, corruption and the allure of sensual pleasures will constantly test him and his masters.
Against all odds, Spartacus' rebellious instincts, his intense love for his wife Sura (Erin Cummings) and his powerful fighting skills drive him to win a series of near-impossible battles - setting in motion a revolution against the tyranny of Rome. To survive, he must become more than a man, more than a gladiator. He must become a legend.
From The Patriot Resource:
Starz' Spartacus: Blood and Sand
picks up where HBO's Rome
left off with adult content. Due to the illness of the actor playing the title character, the second season was delayed so a prequel series, Gods of the Arena
, that focused on Lucretia and Batiatus was filmed. The second season is moving forward with the title lead character having been recast because the first actor was unable to return.
