jeremy-irons-20041221051651434-000Move over, Tudors, here come the Borgias! As Showtime’s over-the-top series “The Tudors” heads into its final season, another 16th-century band of monsters is taking the stage. Showtime has announced plans for a new series about the Italian clan.

Showtime says that Neil Jordan (“The Crying Game”) will direct (the pilot, I’m assuming, not the whole series). A spring 2011 premiere.
