Plot Summary

Sentenced to spend out the rest of his adult life laboring in the harsh deserts of Egypt, the Thracian slave Spartacus gets a new lease on life when he is purchased by the obese owner of a Roman gladiator school. Moved by the defiance of an Ethiopian warrior, Draba, Spartacus leads a slave uprising which threatens Rome's status quo. As Spartacus gains sympathy within the Roman Senate, he also makes a powerful enemy in the form of Marcus Lucinius Crassus, who makes it a matter of personal honor to crush the rebellion. Written by Ronos

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The plot, setting and costumes are nearly identical to those of Stanley Kubrick's Spartacus (1960). However, this adaptation follows Howard Fast's novel more closely than does Kubrick's movie. (Two of the more noticeable omissions of the new adaptation are the "I am Spartacus!" scene, and Spartacus and his wife's reunion after battle.) The mini-series is shown as a story as a woman narrates to her son, who are later revealed to be Spartacus' wife and son. See more »
