Sony-Distributed Aidan Turner Drama ‘Leonardo’ Wraps Shoot Amid Coronavirus Crisis

High-end drama series “Leonardo,” starring Aidan Turner (“Poldark”) as the Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci has wrapped its Italian shoot after becoming one of the first large-scale productions to resume production during the coronavirus crisis.

The series is co-produced and distributed worldwide by Sony Pictures Television. Producers also include Lux Vide with Rai Fiction and Big Light Productions, in association with France Télévisions and Rtve. It is the first Italian production to receive the backing of pan-European co-production initiative The Alliance, created last year by the major European public service broadcasters, Rai, France Télévisions and Zdf.

The series is created by Frank Spotnitz (“Medici”) and Steve Thompson (“Sherlock”) and directed by Dan Percival (“The Man in the High Castle”) and Alexis Sweet (“Don Matteo”).

The cast also includes Giancarlo Giannini (“Catch 22”), Matilda De Angelis (“The Undoing”), Freddie Highmore (“The Good Doctor”), Carlos Cuevas (“Merlì”) and James D’Arcy (“Broadchurch”).
