One of the most pleasant surprises of last year’s television season was Starz’s Spartacus: Blood and Sand. It was visually arresting and violent, but also well written and acted, with some great writing. Who’da thunk that the producers of the Hercules and Xena TV shows would produce such an adult television show?
Well, with main star of the show Andy Whitfield currently battling cancer, the producers of the show decided to move forward with a prequel starring the characters played by John Hannah (The Mummy movies) and Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess), which kicks off on January 21st and looks sufficiently kick-ass. Check out the trailer below.
