This appears to be a behind the scenes Gods of the Arena shot for Italian TV with the voice being Italian but it also features Lucy as well as Liam McIntyre, Katrina Law and Dustin Claire.

From what the actors are wearing it appears that the interviews were conducted during Comic Con in July. Barbara Bruno has translated the interview portion from the original Italian to English for AUSXIP. Many thanks to Barbara for that!

Here's the video:

Spartacus Gods of the Arena

Even the successful show Spartacus Blood and Sand has a prequel.
This is the special video I made for Sky 1:

Here's the Translation:

Spartacus is back... with a new thrilling season. Spartacus: Gods of the arena!!

The House of Batiatus and his ruthless gladiators before the arrival of Spartacus.


The rise of Crixus. How Oenomaus became Doctore.
The relationship between Batiatus and his father...
...and his first successess.

The dreams of glory and freedom of the gladiators. The dreams of power and lust of the patricians and their women.

Spin Off and prequel of the beautiful and lucky show Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Gods of the Arena contains the explosive themes that made great the first season, but plus scandalous backstages and new intriguing characters.

The Champion of Batiatus' Ludus is Gannicus.

DUSTIN CLARE- GANNICUS
Gannicus is the antihero. By playing him, I wanted him to be a very different character from Spartacus, even if deeply in his heart is very sensible.

LUCY LAWLESS- LUCRETIA
In the prequel, you can see how Lucretia trusts people and tries to protect her slaves, but then something ruins everything to the rebellion. And her capacity to love vanishes away.



DUSTIN CLARE- GANNICUS
It is a fight for survival. In every moment, each character may die. The characters disappear from the series in a brutal and sudden way.


DUSTIN CLARE-GANNICUS
You can never be sure if your character will live or die.

Gods of the arena will be a new big hit, in the world and in Italy...

LUCY LAWLESS-LUCRETIA
I would love to be famous in Italy
... for several reasons.


MANU BENNETT-CRIXUS
Many people that work in the series have already worked in big productions movies like Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia and many other movies with lots of special effects.


KATRINA LAW
The graphic novel style makes the violence in Spartacus attractive.

KATRINA LAW
The blood splatters are treated in a non-realistic way and exalt the audience, while the sex scenes are so explicit and so realistic to give the shivers.


LUCY LAWLESS- LUCRETIA
This is what attracts immediately.

LUCY LAWLESS- LUCRETIA
But we must add drama, intrigues, danger, passion and heroism to support the show, otherwise the audience would be disappointed with the same facility.


LYAM MCINTYRE- SPARTACUS
Violence, sex and all the rest make this show really interesting, but the story holds on power plays and how the character change according to their relationships.

LUCY LAWLESS- LUCRETIA
It is the most complex show and you will be sucked into it
