At today’s Starz Television Critics Association (TCA) presentation, Starz Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht announced a unique and special opportunity for binge watchers as he revealed all episodes of the third and final season of “Da Vinci’s Demons” and the widely-anticipated limited series “Flesh and Bone” will be available exclusively for STARZ subscribers on STARZ PLAY and STARZ ON DEMAND corresponding with the respective first episode premieres on October 24 and November 8.

The binge-ing opportunities give STARZ subscribers online and on-demand options to watch all ten episodes of season three of “Da Vinci’s Demons” from creator and executive producer by David S. Goyer and all eight episodes of “Flesh and Bone” from Emmy award-winning “Breaking Bad” writer and executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett, in advance of the respective episode premieres on STARZ.

“Starz has had a fantastic year with original programming in 2015 and we are rewarding our STARZ subscribers with two special opportunities to immerse themselves into quality series and enjoy them on their own schedules,” 
said Albrecht.

David Baldwin, Starz Executive Vice President of Program Planning added, “The great and passionate followers of 
‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ have been waiting since the spring of last year for new episodes, while the gritty world of ballet as depicted in the ‘Flesh and Bone’ limited series is must-see television for fans of the genre and great television alike. Both series are engaging and well-suited for a binge viewing experiment. In the busy fall television season, we thought this was a terrific benefit for STARZ subscribers who want to get a jump and enjoy the complete series on their own time and schedule, with the first two seasons of ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ already available on STARZ PLAY and STARZ ON DEMAND.”

The historical fantasy, created and executive produced by David S. Goyer and produced by Adjacent Productions, follows the ‘untold’ story of the world’s greatest genius, Leonardo da Vinci, during his turbulent youth in Renaissance Florence. John Shiban (“Hell on Wheels,” “Breaking Bad,”“The X-Files”) joins “Da Vinci’s Demons” season three as executive producer and showrunner. Series creator David S. Goyer will continue to serve as executive producer.

Da Vinci’s Demons” stars Tom Riley (“Monroe,” “Doctor Who”), as the title character; Laura Haddock (The Inbetweeners movie, Guardians of the Galaxy) who plays Lucrezia Donati; Elliot Cowan (“Luther”) who plays the de factor ruler of Florence, Lorenzo Medici; Lara Pulver (Edge of Tomorrow, “Fleming,” “Sherlock”), who plays his wife Clarice Orsini; and Blake Ritson (Serena, “Upstairs Downstairs”) who plays the ruthless and unwavering Count Girolamo Riario, nephew of Pope Sixtus IV.

“Flesh and Bone” follows a young dancer with a distinctly troubled past as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York. The dark, gritty, complex series unflinchingly explores New York City through the eyes of Claire, played by Sarah Hay (“Black Swan”), an emotionally wounded but transcendent ballerina navigating the dysfunction and glamour of the ballet world. Claire’s self-destructive tendencies amid her vaulting ambitions drive her in compelling, unforeseeable ways, especially when she is confronted with the machinations of the company’s mercurial Artistic Director, played by Ben Daniels (“House of Cards,” “Law & Order UK”) and an unwelcome visitor from her past.

Flesh and Bone,” was created by Emmy award-winning “Breaking Bad” writer and Executive Producer, Moira Walley-Beckett. John Melfi (“House of Cards,” “Sex and the City”), Lawrence Bender (Inglourious Basterds, Pulp Fiction and Good Will Hunting) and Kevin Brown (“Roswell”) are Executive Producers. Australian filmmaker David Michôd (Animal Kingdom, Rover) directed the first episode.
