HBO takes a different direction from the masses by bringing in something a bit more religious. Young Pope was created and directed by Paolo Sorrentino. The miniseries goes into the life of what Cheat Sheet describes as the first ever fictional American Plontiff, with Jude Law starring as the Pope. His character, Lenny Belardo who also goes by Pope Pius XIll, is described as both mysterious and contradictory. He is said to be naïve, a bit old school but also possessing the exact opposite of those characteristics. While inside the Vatican he finds himself on a very lonely path seeking God, not just for himself. Joining Jude Law in the cast are James Cromwell, Tom Bertolrelli, Silvio Orlando and so many other international actors and actresses. HBO is said to have collaborated with Skyline and Canal Plus to make this production. Young Pope airs January 15th and has already been approved for a second season.
