The French series The Young Pope debuted on Canal + in October 2016, ahead of a US premiere on HBO in early 2017. The series follows the exploits of the first American Pope, Pius XIII, played by the decidedly non-American actor Jude Law. Pius began life as Lenny Belardo, a devoted and faithful servant of his faith and one of the youngest men ever elected to the position. Directed by Youth (2015) and The Great Beauty (2013) helmer Paolo Sorrentino, this ten episode limited series bathes in its lavish sets, gorgeous locales, and beautiful cinematography. The series also got off to a skinsational start with a sexy flashback to Lenny's early days when he briefly has a memory of his mother, played by the lovely Olivia Macklin, sunbathing topless! Next the series upped the ante with Rayna Tharani making her nude debut in one of the craziest DP MMF threesomes ever broadcast on TV. The Young Pope will have you beating your bishop!
