tv Showtime orders 'The Vatican' with Ridley Scott directing

4 posts in this topic

Ridley Scott is set to direct his first-ever TV pilot.

The Alien director will helm a new project at Showtime called The Vatican.

The show is billed as a ?a provocative contemporary genre thriller about spirituality, power and politics ? set against the modern-day political machinations within the Catholic church. The series will explore the relationships and rivalries as well as the mysteries and miracles behind one of the world?s most hidden institutions.? Paul Attanasio (House) wrote the script.

The Vatican is just ordered as a pilot at this stage, but tough to imagine Showtime shelving a project after Scott directing the first episode.

Cue Bill Donohue outrage.

Showtime also has "The Borgias" currently running, which is quite good too and is about the pope, but from a different time period in history!

If done properly and no holds barred, it could be pretty amazing! Be interesting to see how this pans out.
