Anytown, USA Executive Producer and Oz creator Tom Fontana’s new show Borgia has been added to Netflix’s watch instantly library. The European-produced series, which stars The Wire‘s John Doman as patriarch Rodrigo Borgia, follows the corrupt papal family’s rise to power in the late 15th century. North American rights to the show were purchased by Netflix in late September.

Rival The Borgias starring Jeremy Irons will not be accessible to internet audiences as Showtime has decided to make its current series available only to network subscribers. Fontana and The Borgias creator Neil Jordan intially proposed combining the two series but decided to part ways following creative differences on their historical interpretations of the infamous papal family.

After impressive premieres on France’s Canal + earlier this month and Germany’s ZDF Monday night, a second season of Borgia already seems likely according to The Hollywood Reporter.
