The project, written by Michael Seitzman, is described as an "epic romance set in a world of sorcery, gods and monsters that centers on Cleopatra, Mark Antony and Julius Caesar."

Driving the storyline will be the young queen's "sacred pact with a goddess to win back her throne, igniting a curse and an infamous love triangle that changes the course of history, forever ending the 4,000 year dominion of the Pharaoh."

Seitzman, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott are executive producers.
