Netflix has ordered eight episodes of the original Greek mythology-themed anime series “Gods & Heroes”.
Charley and Vlas Parlapanides (“Immortals,” “Death Note”) created the series which chronicles the illegitimate son of Zeus, a young man tasked with saving heaven and earth despite the interference of a vengeful goddess and her monstrous forces.
Jason O’Mara, Mamie Gummer and Chris Diamantopoulos, Derek Phillips, Jessica Henwick, Melina Kanakaredes, Claudia Christian and Elias Toufexis lend their voices.
The Parlapanides will serve as writers and executive producers. Powerhouse Animation (“Castlevania”) will lead the animation development and creation.
