Seems Netflix is working out plans to create a 9-series Epic that explores young Marco's life. Politics, war, intrigue. The series got canned by Starz due to cost over-runs. But it may come back to life. Interesting!
Must've been some epic! Would very much like to see that. I hope a network comes in and saves the project, although I also hope it's not Netflix. Incidentally, there's rumors that the lost early Doctor Who serial on Marco Polo (which is basically a biopic) has been found and is currently being restored for release!
