Betrayed by the Romans. Forced into slavery. Reborn as a Gladiator. The classic tale of the Republic’s most infamous rebel comes alive in the graphic and visceral new series, Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Torn from his homeland and the woman he loves, Spartacus 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 constantly test Spartacus. To survive, he must become more than a man. More than a gladiator. He must become a legend. Starring Australian actor Andy Whitfield (McLEOD'S DAUGHTERS) as Spartacus, Lucy Lawless (TV's XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS) as Lucretia, John Hannah (THE MUMMY) as Batiatus and Peter Mensah (300) as Doctore, this unique mix of live action, graphic novel effects, and brutal battle sequences makes Spartacus: Blood and Sand an epic event. Spartacus: Blood and Sand is produced by Starz Media with Executive Producers Rob Tapert (THE GRUDGE, TV's XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS), Sam Raimi (SPIDER-MAN, THE EVIL DEAD), Joshua Donen (THE QUICK AND THE DEAD), and Steven S.
