BERLIN — RTL Television has picked up terrestrial TV rights to HBO’s 12-part series “Rome.”

Skein, which focuses on two Roman soldiers and their families, will bow on HBO in September and on Germany’s pay TV service Premiere at the end of the year.

The BBC co-produced the $100 million series, which also was backed by Italy’s RAI, Jan Mojto’s EOS Entertainment and Premiere.

Date for the rise of “Rome” on RTL is yet to be set, although it is expected to air next year.
