Stars Jude Law as fictional Pope Pius XIII (born Lenny Belardo), the newly elected Pope struggling with his new responsibilities.
Gutierrez grapples with his alcoholism while investigating the crimes of Archbishop Kurtwell. As Spencer's condition worsens, Lenny opens up about the mysteries of his past. Meanwhile, Kurtwell attempts to retaliate against Pius by leaking unsent love letters to the press.
Jude Law gives one of his greatest performances as Pope Pius XIII, formerly Lenny Belardo, the first American pope. A chain-smoking, secretive, right-wing Machiavelli with a love of gold jewelry and big hats, Lenny knows what's up in the Vatican, so he eschews the counsel of the Secretary of State and brings in his surrogate mother, Sister Mary (Diane Keaton), to serve as his chief advisor. From the mind of Oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino, this is a fun, stylish, interesting, wonderfully watchable series.
