** Although now mostly famous for his portrayal of Cesare Borgia, Canadians and francophone [[LGBTFanbase LGBT people]] outside Canada may have recognised François Arnaud from his part in Creator/XavierDolan 's first film, "I Killed My Mother" as the boyfriend of protagonist Hubert (arguably Xavier Dolan's AuthorAvatar). Especially of note is a certain scene that involves [[UnusualEuphemism redecorating]] a certain room with a fair amount of paint, to a lively Belgian synthpop tune called Noir Désir (no, not [[Music/NoirDesir that one]]).

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Showrunner Neil Jordan had originally planned for the show to last for four seasons like ''Series/TheTudors''. So when Showtime announced that season 3 would be the last, there was an outcry from fans. Jordan later revealed that he had proposed to make a two hour film to wrap up the storyline and give the show a GrandFinale, but Showtime declined, citing high production costs.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: It was originally supposed to be a film, simply titled ''"Borgia"'', with Creator/ColinFarrell and Creator/ScarlettJohansson as Cesare and Lucrezia, but funding fell through. Director NeilJordan eventually found the money with the Showtime network, and thus a series was born.

* LyingCreator: If you look at the record, the show runners were this in spades. In two of the more notable examples, they said that they wouldn't go into the Banquet of the Chesnuts because it would be too much "even for Showtime." They did. Then they said they wouldn't go into the [[spoiler: Cesare and Lucretzia incest]] before doing it as well.
