Julius Caesar Spinoff from Spartacus?

We're still waiting for definitive word on whether the Starz Network will be spinning off a show about Julius Caesar from Spartacus. 

The casting of Todd Lasance was brilliant. He could certainly pull off a whole series. And the story of Julius Caesar is packed full of adventurous episodes that could easily make three or four seasons of programming.


I include a discussion of Julius Caesar in my
 online Udemy course Fortune Favors the Brave. Visit my website for more details.

Julius Caesar is the epitome of Fortuna (Fortune) because he knew that a certain element of luck always exists in life. But Caesar also knew that taking a proactive approach to life would help you increase your chances at success, even though randomness may play an part.

A knowledge of the importance of Fortune/Luck is why, as he was about to cross the Rubicon River, he said the famous words Alea Iacta Est (The Die is Cast). He used a gambling term because, even though life is a game where others may plan unfairly, you can't win if you don't play.
