Lenny Belardo, aka Pius XIII, is the first American Pope in history. Young and charming, his election might seem the result of a simple and effective media strategy by the College of Cardinals. But, as we know, appearances can be deceptive. Especially in the place and among the people who have chosen the great mystery of God as the guiding light of their existence. That place is the Vatican and those people are the leaders of the Catholic Church. And the most mysterious and contradictory figure of all turns out to be Pius XIII himself. Shrewd and naïve, old-fashioned and very modern, doubtful and resolute, ironic, pedantic, hurt and ruthless, Pius XIII tries to walk the long path of human loneliness to find a God for mankind. And for himself.
The Young Pope Reviews
“The series' appeal has everything to do with watching this outsider
come crashing through an ossified system like a wrecking ball, refusing to
follow the rules or set aside any personal pettiness, declaring war on anyone
who defies him.”
– Buzzfeed News
“he script is genuinely smart, jokes about "gerontophilia” and all,
rather than the kind of subreddit-worthy puzzle-boxing that now passes for
– Rolling Stone
“It's thrilling watching Mr. Law embody these dualities, alternately
oozing confidence as he outwits his enemies and laid bare with vulnerability as
he asks an estranged mentor for advice.”
– Wall Street Journal
