[TV] Syfy To Air New Mythology Drama Olympus
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.07.2014



Coming Soon reports that Syfy, Reunion Pictures and Great Point Media have announced the new mythological series Olympus, which will consist of thirteen one-hour episodes. It will debut on Syfy in 2015. The series will be written by Nick Willing (Tinman, Alice, Neverland) and executive produced by Robert Halmi Sr (Mr. And Mrs. Bridge, The Odyssey, Gulliver's Travels).

Here's a synopsis: "Olympus" will tell the story of how a few brave men and women banished the Gods to the realm of the unconscious - a place they called the Underworld or the Kingdom of Hades. The series will follow the protagonist on his journey as he gradually transforms from a fresh-faced and raw young man through the dramatic experiences of betrayal, love, disappointment, empowerment and exile, until he emerges a ruthless leader of men, and a match for the Gods themselves.

It is being produced by Reunion Pictures and Olympus TV (London) Limited, along with Great Point Media. Production begins in Vancouver and London this summer. The first episode will be written and directed by Willing. Robert Halmi Sr. for The Halmi Company, Robert Halmi Jr. and Jim Reeve for Great Point Media and Matthew O'Connor and Lisa Richardson for Reunion Pictures will all executive prodce. Content Media Group will distribute outside the US, Germany and Canada.

Chris Regina, Senior Vice President of Programming for Syfy, said: "'Olympus' is a fantastic blend of action, intense thrills, creatures and great story telling. It will feature characters from mythology in a way never before imagined. It's an excellent complement to our roster of programming and we can't wait to share the adventures of Hero with the Syfy audience."

Halmi Sr added: "I'm thrilled that the team of Willing, O'Connor and Halmi are together on another exciting Syfy project. With the success of 'Tinman,' 'Neverland' and 'Alice,' we are confident that this will be another epic adventure for television."
