This week, Nick Willing joins us to chat about how he created Olympus, what he finds appealing about the classic Greek Tragedies, about working with a large number of digital effects on a TV schedule, and more.
Olympus tells 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 follows the protagonist Hero (Tom York, Tyrant) as he seeks the truth about his past, which may be intertwined with the Gods themselves. The series also stars Sonya Cassidy (The Paradise, Vera) as Oracle, Matt Frewer (Orphan Black, The Knick) as Daedalus, Sonita Henry (Star Trek, The Fifth Element) as Medea, and Graham Shiels (Guardians of the Galaxy, True Blood) as King Aegeus.
