Looks like HBO and the BBC might team up on a miniseries adaptation of I, Claudius. Given their (at least artistic) success with Rome, this could be excellent.
Incidentally, if you haven't watched Rome, you really should. Takes a couple episodes to find itself, but then it really burns along. Excellent performances. My favorite: the great Ciaran Hinds, who somehow takes iconic Julius Ceasar and makes him a fully-formed human being.
