Forget "The Tudors," that family is so 16th Century. Now, "The Borgias," that's totally where it's at today. Provided, naturally, that 'today' is the end of the 15th Century, because that's when this look at the powerful Renaissance family takes place. There is, almost certainly, a contingent of people out there who firmly believe that Ezio Auditore da Firenze will be present, at least on the periphery, of this series. We don't recommend holding your breath while you wait for that particular crossover to occur. Yes, some of the historical figures are the same, but don't expect any Animus action on Showtime.
