SPARTACUS (Starz) - Todd Lasance's Gaius Julius Caesar, the chief antagonist of the show's upcoming final season, is being eyed for a potential spin-off at the cable channel. Executive producer Robert Tapert is spearheading the effort, which would track the young Caesar who has yet to begin his ascent toward ruling the Roman state. "Spartacus" creator Steven S. DeKnight likely won't be involved in the project as he's busy with the sci-fi drama "Incursion," also at the network. (Deadline.com)
