In an age of instant messaging, dating services, and nightclubs the Greek gods of love have slowly lost their relevance in the modern world. As their necessity seems to dwindle, the once perpetually immortal gods face damnation to mortality. To prevent this downgrade, the gods must step up their game and significantly lower their failure rate. After purchasing a mansion in the appropriately named Mount Olympus area of Los Angeles, these zany mythological characters begin their matchmaking mission.
The gods� motherly leader is Grace Valentine (Jaime Murray), whose mythological equivalent is Aphrodite. She is aided by Hercules (Robert Baker), now dubbed Leo; Grace�s son, Cupid portrayed by Danny (Kristopher Polaha); and her daughter Phoebe (Autumn Reeser). In a strange twist the Oracle of Delphi takes the form of a hot tub, where photos are tossed in and prophecy returned. The final primary character is Kate Providence (Christine Lakin), a mortal romance novelist who might just hook up with Danny.
Complications occur in episode one when Grace rekindles her flame with Ray Howard, aka Hephaestus (Patrick Fabian). The gods� couple of interest in the pilot is Roland (Mike Faiola) and Joanna (Lauren Cohan), two soul mates who Kate eventually helps to unite. Each week is similar, with the team strategically attempting to either spark or rehabilitate a specific relationship, all the while dealing with their own interpersonal drama.
