Starz has unleashed the first trailer for the upcoming series Da Vinci's Demons, premiering in 2013. This eight-episode series stars Tom Riley as Leonardo Da Vinci, who invents the future as he sees fit. Check out the first footage from the new show, created by David S. Goyer, debuting in 2013.

Da Vinci's Demons is David S. Goyer's historical fantasy, following the "untold" story of the world's greatest genius during his raucous youth in Renaissance Florence. Brash and brilliant, the twenty five-year old Leonardo da Vinci is an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist. As a free thinker, with intellect and talents that are almost superhuman, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time. He begins to not only see the future, but invent it.
