The Olympus Family Picture

Top to bottom, left to right:
Hades, Zeus, Hera, Apollo, Poseidon, Dionisos, Artemis, Athena and Aphrodite


I had the idea of making the gods of Olympus into a TV show.

The idea actually came with a plot: the brothers Zeus and Hades own a law firm, where Apollo (which recently graduated) is a rising star, always trying to please his dad, with the obscure advices of his uncle Hades.

Zeus, unlike his son Apollo, is a bon vivant: can't keep it in his pants, doesn't play by any rules but his own, and always manage to win on his terms.

Apollo is always divided between his two favorite uncles: Hades and Poseidon. Poseidon is the cool uncle, and he gets along fine with Zeus, inspite his occasional irresponsability (which makes Dionisos a fan of his uncle Poseidon).

Dionisos is the eternal party maker. His father Zeus always try to keep him on tracks, while Hera always says he just got that from his father.

Hera is a wife tormented by the mistakes of her husband, but with a warm motherly love, can accept those illegitimate children into her house: "It's not their fault", she always says.

Athena and Aphrodite never get along. The first is a geek, very smart and always reading. The other is a femme fatale: always ruining men's hearts. Both sisters constantly argue about what men really like: boobs or brains.

The middle ground is Artemis, twin-sister of Apollo. She is a sports junky, but with a lot of personality.


My girlfriend still reminded me of Ares, god of war... I'll add the characters as the show goes on: Ares could be a skinhead in jail, for an instance.

Funny when you think about it, they all look a LOT like us.
