The series stars Tom Riley (Return to House on Haunted Hill) as Leonardo Da Vinci, a man with a tenacious thirst for knowledge that tests the boundaries of imagination, religion, and science.

At the heart of this new series is Leonardo Da Vinci. A man many think they already know thanks to his famous paintings, drawings, and advances in science.

The series deals with Da Vinci’s backstory in such a way that it will hold the interest of anyone who watches. Not just the history buffs. (More…)
