Leonardo is a new limited series by Frank Spotnitz (The Man in the High Castle) and Steve Thompson (Sherlock).

The show is centered around Leonardo Da Vinci, played by Aidan Turner (The HobbitPoldark), and fictional police detective Stefano Giraldi, played by Freddie Highmore (Finding NeverlandBates Motel). Rounding up the main cast is Matilda De Angelis (The Undoing) as Caterina Da Cermona. The series just started filming this past Monday, and in it we will see the events unfold as Stefano Giraldi investigates Da Vinci as a murder suspect, and thus starts looking into the legendary artist’s past.

Sony has just been announced to co-produce the eight episodes, together with Big Light Productions, Lux Vide, and Rai Fiction. Leonardo will be directed by The Man in the High Castle-director Dan Percival. There is still no word on when and how the series will air, though speculations point to Leonardo reaching audiences sometime during 2020, since that will mark the 500 year anniversary since Leonardo Da Vinci’s death.
