We are proud to announce that our upcoming period series Heresy has tapped Butch Kaplan as Executive Producer/Showrunner.

Set in thirteenth century medieval Italy, when the country was engulfed in a struggle for power between the Catholic Church, the Holy Roman Empire and French Templars, Heresy centers around a mysterious young woman whose life is intrinsically linked to the destiny of the world.

Kaplan is a Hollywood veteran. He served as producer on many major film productions (The Notebook, Oldboy, Babylon A.D) and AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead. His series credits also include Sundance Channel’s The Red Road, USA Cable’s Dark Prince and FX’s Devs – Alex Garland’s upcoming new sci-fi series. Kaplan is also member of the Directors Guild of America and the Producers Guild of America. He represents the Czech Republic on the International Committee.

“I am looking forward to working with the Nucleus Media Rights team in bringing daring and innovative entertainment to the world of viewers”, Kaplan said.

Kaplan is thus joining creator and lead writer Mark Melville and director Anthony LaMolinara in order to bring Heresy to a global audience.
