Olympus set to film in Vancouver
Olympus is a 13 x 60 mythological drama series which follows Hero as he makes his way through a world of humans, gods and monsters.
As with Neverland, Olympus is written by Nick Willing, who will also direct the first episode. Robert Halmi Jr returns to executive produce, alongside Robert Halmi Sr, Lisa Richardson, Matthew O’Connor and Jim Reeve.
The drama comes from Vancouver-based Reunion Pictures and Olympus TV in London, in association with Great Point Media, who told us that filming in Vancouver will be mainly green screen, with post-production taking place in London.
“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,” said Chris Regina, senior vice president, programming, Syfy. “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.”
