It's fair to say that Paolo Sorrentino cooked up one of the TV events of a year ago by plonking a mitre onto Jude Law's bonce and putting him in The Young Pope, a controversial tale of a (relatively) fresh-faced pontiff with a dodgy past and some radical ideas.

Santorum removed himself after saying the position would put a financial strain on his family, according to the Times. But she also played a role in breaking up his second marriage, according to Mr.
Sky Italia chief of content Andrea Scrosati told Variety: "Just like The Young Pope, Sorrentino is writing the script for the new show, but it will have a different twist than what would be expected". Producers Lorenzo Mieli and Mario Gianani of Wildside are also returning and will be working in co-production with Mediapro. FremantleMedia International will handle global sales.
But before production begins, Sorrentino (who won a foreign-language Oscar in 2014 for The Great Beauty) will next shoot the movie Loro, about Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian media tycoon-turned-prime minister. There is no world yet if Law will appear in the new series.
As the title suggests, The New Pope will be following a new papacy and as such the original cast, including Jude Law, are not expected to reprise their roles.
