The synopsis of the series describes the story: “The city of Atlantis is a strange, ancient dwelling; a world of bull leaping, of reptile haired goddesses and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants. Young Jason arrives in the city and a magical adventure begins.”

Shooting on the 13-part series will begin in April in Wales and Morocco.

  1. IF IF IF this is yet another abuse of Hellenic mythology I will openly campaign against it

  2. My question is why don’t they screen these types of movies in Greece first, and then let Greek people assist in the accuracy before they just “fart” them out to the theaters and TV.
