''Da Vinci's Demons'' is a TV series about [[LeonardoDaVinci Leonardo Da Vinci's]] fictional early life [[RenaissanceMan as an artist, inventor, idealist, and a genius intellectual]], which premiered on Fox and Starz networks. It was written by David S. Goyer (who collaborated with Christopher Nolan on ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga''), and it stars Tom Riley. The story is mostly realistic, drawing from historical events and showcasing real-life historical figures, but it also contains a LowFantasy MythArc that involves a search for a MacGuffin called 'The Book of Leaves'. This single volume contains hidden knowledge about the universe, and one's possession of it can radically alter the political power-field. Most people are unaware of this book, and those who do know of it generally have ties to the Vatican or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mithraic_mysteries The Sons of Mithras]], an ancient cult that is dedicated to the pursuit of the book.
