'Empire' Cast and Information at a Glance

Discuss ABC Empire

The ABC mini-series, Empire, is set in 44 BC in the days leading up to and after the Ides of March (the day of Julius Caesar's assassination). It will primarily follow a completely fictional account of Caesar's adopted heir, Octavius (Later Augustus) and Tyrannus, a former gladiator who has pledged his allegiance to protect the future first emperor.

The series has faced considerable problems since originally developed including an incredible $50 million budget. This has apparently been cut with the reduction of 8 planned to 6 actual shows, but financial problems as well as executive overhaul within the ABC environment have continued to threaten 'Empire'. It seems that the series is back on course to compete with the HBO-BBC co-production of 'Rome' in mid summer 2005.

Latin was the language originally spoken in the region around Rome called Latium. It gained great importance as the formal language of the Roman Empire. All Romance languages descend from a Latin parent, and many words based on Latin are found in other modern languages such as English.
