Aidan Turner Italian Series ‘Leonardo’ & Australian Comedy Drama ‘Bump’ Land At The CW
The CW is continuing to look abroad to solidify its schedule.

The youth-skewing network has picked up Italian drama series Leonardo, starring Poldark’s Aidan Turner, and Australian comedy drama Bump.

It comes after the broadcaster picked up Patrick Dempsey-fronted Italian series Devils as well as titles such as Canada’s Coroner and UK’s Dead Pixels. It also shares New Zealand comedy Wellington Paranormal, created by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, with HBO Max.

Created by The X-Files’ Frank Spotnitz and Sherlock’s Steve Thompson, the hourlong Leonardo explores the secrets and drama behind the genius of Leonardo da Vinci, played by Turner. The eight-part series follows da Vinci as he grows into an unparalleled genius and renowned polymath whose work overturned the established order.

It also stars Matilda de Angelis, Freddie Highmore, Giancarlo Giannini, Carlos Cuevas, Alessandro Sperduti, James D’Arcy, Robin Renucci, Hugo Becker, Miriam Dalmazio and Max Bennet.
