Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, the prequel to Starz’ hit series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, premieres Friday, January 21st at 10pm ET/PT. To whet fan’s appetite, Starz digital media has created a new Facebook social media game and a multimedia iPad script app from Starz iTune store that offers episodes and exclusive commentaries about Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Spartacus: Gods of the Arena.
The Spartacus: Gods of the Arena social media game is free to play and brings players into a world of fame, fortune, glory and (of course) blood, all via a Facebook social gaming experience. The Beta for the social game will be opened up on January 6 to the first 10,000 “Spartacus” fans who register on Facebook (www.facebook.com/spartacus.starz). A full public launch of the Spartacus: Gods of the Arena social media game is planned for January 20, prior to the exclusive debut of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena.
Scheduled to be launched January 17 in the iTunes Starz storefront (itunes.com/starz), the "Spartacus" iPad script app provides a robust viewing experience with electronic screenplays from the Starz original series augmented by exclusive multimedia video segments, director’s notes, cast photos, historical background information, and more.
The "Spartacus" iPad script application is a free download for iPad users, with the first episode of Spartacus: Blood and Sand (“The Red Serpent”) included as part of the app download. Additional “Spartacus” multimedia iPad episode scripts will be available for individual purchase for $0.99 each, with the entire 13-part Spartacus: Blood and Sand series of multimedia iPad scripts available for $4.99.
The first iPad electronic script for Spartacus: Gods of the Arena (“Past Transgressions”) will be pushed out as a free update to “Spartacus” iPad script app users on January 22. Each additional multimedia episode script from the six-part series will be available individually for $0.99 the day after debuting on Starz. The entire six-part Spartacus: Gods of the Arena multimedia series script set will be available for $2.99. Beginning January 22, iPad script app downloads will include both of the multimedia iPad screenplays from the first episode of each “Spartacus” series preinstalled with the app download.
Source: Edited Staz PRSpartacus: Gods of the Arena, premiering January 21, tells the story of the original Champion of the House of Batiatus: Gannicus (Dustin Clare) in a more ruthless time before Spartacus’ arrival where honor was just finding its way into the arena. The new series adds to the cast Jaime Murray as Capua’s sexy social climber Gaia and Marisa Ramirez as Melitta, a beautiful slave who must face the ultimate decision of the heart. Jeffrey Thomas plays Batiatus’s father Titus, the traditional and cautious Lanista, head of the Ludus. They join returning cast members John Hannah (Quintus Batiatus), Lucy Lawless (Lucretia), Peter Mensah (Oenomaus, before he becomes Doctore, the gladiator trainer) and Manu Bennett (Crixus).
