OLYMPUS – NEW T.V. DRAMA
I know some Greek mythology but my attention was drawn to this new series simply because the director is Nick Willing who directed me in the feature film ‘Altar’. It has really piqued my interest and I intend to learn a lot more about Greek mythology. In the meantime here is a sneaky peek at the trailer for the new drama which premiers on SyFy T.V. tomorrow, Thursday, 10 p.m. – “The Temple of Gaia”
The hero, actually called Hero and played by Tom York sets out 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 naive into a ruthless, cold hearted killer, and match for the gods themselves.
