Domina — Sky releases pictures and trailer for forthcoming epic drama

Posted Filed under

Sky has released a set of pictures (we’ve chosen one from episode 3) and trailer for new epic drama Domina

Coming this May, Domina is an epic historical drama series which brings to life the power struggles of Ancient Rome from a different perspective; that of the women. The eight episode series, coming to Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW in the UK in May 2021 stars Kasia Smutniak (Perfect Strangers, Them, Devils) playing Livia Drusilla, with the young Livia played by Nadia Parkes (The Spanish Princess), and supported by an international stellar cast including Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) playing Livius, Livia’s father, and Colette Tchantcho (The Witcher) as Antigone, Livia’s best friend, ex-slave and closest ally.

Created and written by Simon Burke (Zen, Fortitude) with acclaimed Australian filmmaker Claire McCarthy (Ophelia, The Luminaries) as lead director, Domina also stars Matthew McNulty (Misfits) as the future emperor Gaius, Christine Bottomley (The End of the F***ing World) as Scribonia, Ben Batt (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Agrippa, Enzo Cilenti (Free Fire) as Tiberius Claudius Nero, while Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black) plays Claudia Octavia. Isabella Rossellini (Blue Velvet, Death Becomes Her) makes an appearance playing Balbina, an early enemy.

You can watch the new trailer now; it’s only one minute long, so we expect others to follow nearer release. Spoiler: Livia Drusilla was the first Empress of Rome in 67 BC. She’s a well known historic figure of some interest (see her wiki for example), but this series focusses on her rise to power, rather than time in it. It’s only series 1, though.
