Premise:

Blood and Sand: "Betrayed by the Romans. Forced into slavery. Reborn as a Gladiator. The classic tale of the Republic’s most infamous rebel comes alive in the graphic and visceral new series, Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Torn from his homeland and the woman he loves, Spartacus is condemned to the brutal world of the arena where blood and death are primetime entertainment. But not all battles are fought upon the sands. Treachery, corruption, and the allure of sensual pleasures will constantly test Spartacus. To survive, he must become more than a man. More than a gladiator. He must become a legend.."

Gods of the Arena: "This prequel mini-series tells the story of the rise of the House of Batiatus and its champions before Spartacus entered the picture. Basking in the glow of the newest champion of the house, Gannicus, a young Batiatus is ready to overthrow his father and assume control of the ludus."

Vengeance: "The rebellion continues, and Gaius Claudius Glaber rallies his troops to Capua to stop Spartacus and his band of freed slaves. Will Spartacus choose vengeance or keeping his army together?"

War of the Damned: "With Glaber dead Spartacus and his army of rebels, now amounting to thousands, has become a force to be reckoned with. Determined to bring down the Roman Republic Spartacus leads his mass of freed slaves into a full out war. Rome's only hope is Marcus Crassus who, aided by young Julius Caesar, will do his might to crush Spartacus and his rebellion."
