Domina is an ambitious production that brings to life the power struggles of Ancient Rome from the perspective not of the men but of the women.
Produced by Sky Studios, the ten-part drama follows the life and rise of Livia Drusilla, who overcame adversity to become the most powerful woman in the world. Filming took place at Cinecittà Studios in Rome.
Livia’s journey was one from a naïve young girl whose world crumbles in the wake of Julius Caesar’s assassination, to Rome’s most powerful and influential empress, driven by a deep desire to avenge her father and secure power for her sons. Livia and her peers navigate their way through a brutal society by means of strategy, conspiracy, seduction and murder.
Sky’s drama is grounded in historical accuracy, and brings to life the incredible true stories of the women who would create one of the most enduring and fascinating dynasties of all time.
The latest Domina series comes to Sky Atlantic later in the year.
