Set in “the world of humans, gods and monsters,” Olympus will begin production this summer in Vancouver and London.

Olympus comes from producer Robert Halmi Sr. and writer Nick Willing, previously responsible for Syfy’s Neverland (2011), Alice (2009) and Tinman (2007) miniseries.

Syfy has also picked up 13 episodes of Z Nation, an action-horror series about humans struggling to survive a zombie apocalypse. Z Nation comes from executive-producer Karl Shaefer (Eureka, The Dead Zone) and will premiere this fall.
