Olympus tells the story of Hero (Tom York, Tyrant), a young man, on a mythical quest to solve the riddle of the Gods, unlock the doors to Olympus and become an immortal. Hero’s epic journey leads him through the darkest realms of Ancient Greece accompanied by the beautiful, but twisted Oracle of Gaia, the powerful sorceress Medea and genius inventor Daedalus. Hero battles trickster gods, vicious monsters, seductive nymphs, kings and despots, as he transforms from fresh-faced and naïve to calculating, ruthless, and cold-hearted – a match for the Gods themselves.
Created by Nick Willing (Tinman, Alice, Neverland), Olympus is a Canada-UK co-production produced by Vancouver’s Reunion Pictures (a Thunderbird company) and London’s Olympus TV and distributed by Great Point Media. Executive Producers are Robert Halmi Jr. and Jim Reeve for Great Point Media and Matthew O’Connor for Reunion Pictures.
