Rome was an American-British historical drama television series created by Bruno Heller, John Milius, and William J. MacDonald. The show's two seasons premiered in 2005 and 2007, and were released on DVD soon afterwards.

Rome is set in the 1st century BC, during Ancient Rome's transition from Republic to Empire. The series begins with Caesar's conquest of Gaul and concludes with the death of Mark Antony and the rise of the first Emperor Augustus. The plots focus on the two main characters, soldiers Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo, who find their lives intertwined with the key events.

The series was a ratings success for HBO and the BBC. The show received much media attention from the start, and Rome was honored with numerous awards and nominations in its two-season run. Co-creator Heller stated in December 2008 that a Rome movie is in development. The series was filmed in various locations, but most notably in the Cinecittà studios in Italy.

When I was younger, I used to love watching movies like Spartacus, not so much because they provided particularly great depictions of ancient Rome, but because they were the way anybody get any sense of the grandeur of the Roman empire. In fact, looking back, those films were often quite cheesy. Hollywood stopped making movies about ancient Rome for a long while, until Gladiator came out in 2000. As a movie, Gladiator was awesome and showed a vastly more realistic yet grander Rome than ever before …
