FOX developing Greek God action drama

Greek Gods are hot at Fox this development season. The network has put in development Olympus, an action drama created by writer-director Peter Berg and actor-writer Taylor Sheridan (Sons Of Anarchy). The project, from Universal TV and Berg and Sarah Aubrey’s studio-based Film 44, is described as “Bourne by way of 300.” It centers on a decorated soldier-turned-spy who finds out he actually is descended from the Greek Gods and may just be humanity’s last hope. In his broadcast pilot writing debut, Sheridan will write the script.
Could be interesting. I love Greek mythology.
Could be nice. A comedy series from New Zealand (wiki entry) made rather good use of a similar idea, though they were using Norse mythology to draw ideas from.
