SF in ancient Rome?

TV Squad is reporting on a rumoured, new SF tv show.

"HBO has been working on a new series called The Centurion, which takes place during the peak of the Roman Empire. Now, you're saying, they already have a show like that called Rome. Well, the premise of this series is that aliens regularly visited the famous city to encourage its citizens to aspire to greater heights."

Hmm, sounds like it could be truly awful.

I've heard about this too. Apparently it also has a couple of centurions burning around in a red chariot with a white stripe down the side. Starskyius And Hutchstina. :-O
