Action adventure collection comprising two mini-series and a made-for-TV movie.
In 'The Last Templar' (2009), based on the bestselling novel by Raymond Khoury, Mira Sorvino stars as Tess Chaykin, a Manhattan archaeologist who is drawn into a dangerous mission to uncover the lost secrets of the medieval Knights Templar, which - along with FBI detective Sean Daley (Scott Foley) - leads her through the cemeteries and sewers of Manhattan, across continents to desolate Turkish highlands, into a shipwreck on a remote Greek island... and into the very heart of the Vatican's deepest, darkest secret. 'Rome, Blood and Sand' (2005) follows the rise to power of Julius Caesar's nephew, Octavius.
When Caesar (Colm Feore) is assassinated, Rome's fate lies in the hands of his chosen heir, young Octavius (Santiago Cabrera).
Civil war breaks out and the future of the Empire becomes dependent upon Octavius's defeat of General Mark Antony (Vincent Regan).
In 'Lionheart' (2003), set in 1183, after the death of his eldest son, King Henry II (Patrick Stewart) must decide which of his three remaining sons will succeed him.
As the time for him to announce his successor approaches, Henry frees his imprisoned wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine (Glenn Close), who he held captive after she plotted to overthrow him.
It soon becomes clear, however, that Eleanor favours first child Richard (Andrew Howard), while Henry sees his youngest, John (Rafe Spall), as the next in line but, in the weeks ahead, the King begins to have serious doubts if any of his sons are capable of becoming the new ruler.
