  'THE CAESARS' EPIC SERIES
FROM TUDORS' MICHAEL HIRST AND MARTIN SCORSESE?
The series apparently already has the pilot written
We're all epic today, people, starting with the info coming from 'The Guardian' that Tudors, Elizabeth and Vikings creator Michael Hirst is preparing THE CAESARS series with Martin Scorsese which will cover the lives of some of Rome's most famous rulers. The series, expected to start shooting its first season next year in Italy, will tell the story of the early rulers of ancient Rome, beginning with the rise to power of Julius Caesar! Unlike other projects which used to depict him in his mature age, this series would depict him when he was young, ambitious and full of vitality. As you probably remember, Julius Caesar was indeed already shown as a very ambitious young soldier, filled with both political and sexual energy, in super popular Spartacus series.

  'THE SINGAPORE GRIP'
ITV & MAMMOTH SCREEN PREPARING ASIAN WW2 DRAMA
The book is a part of the Empire trilogy
Speaking of period set dramas, ITV is teaming up with Poldark's and Victoria's Mammoth Screen to turn J.G. Farrell's WW2 novel THE SINGAPORE GRIP into a six episode series. The story is based around a British family living in Singapore at the time of the Japanese invasion. As 'Deadline' reports, it follows rubber merchant Walter Blackett, his wife Sylvia, ruthless daughter Joan and spoilt son Monty, who live a life of luxury, seemingly untouched by the troubles in Europe. However, the story takes a turn when the son of his business partner Mr Webb becomes involved with his daughter Joan before falling under the spell of Vera Chiang, a mysterious Chinese refugee. Christopher Hampton (Atonement, The Quiet American), who won an Oscar for Dangerous Liaisons, is penning the script.
