Rumor has it he made his horse a consul, his palace a brothel, and his sisters his, erm, "girlfriends." Two thousand years later, the jury's still out on how crazy Emperor Caligula really was.But one thing's for certain: He was, and remains, a fascinating character.
That's why I was thrilled to be a host/"story-teller" for the History Channel's 2-hour documentary on the Roman emperor, produced by North South Productions. And, having premiered in Australia and New Zealand, the documentary is finally coming out in the U.S.
So mark your calendars: The U.S. premiere date for "Caligula: 1400 Days of Terror" is Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 9pm. Tune in to hear me and other friends in Rome, including Katie Parla and Darius Arya, share the latest theories behind this still-mysterious figure!
Update, Oct. 4: The preview has just been put online! You can get a glimpse of the show here.
Update, Nov. 5: You can now buy the documentary for instant download from Amazon for $1.99; get it here.
