A new comedy-drama from the creators of the hit series OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE, THE ALMIGHTY JOHNSONS explores the lives of four brothers who just happen to be descended from Norse Gods. Each of the Johnson boys has his own godlike power - it’s just that their powers aren’t all that powerful!
Big brother Mike has the weight of the world on his shoulders. Keeper of the family secret, he is tasked with looking after his mischievous brothers and keeping them out of trouble. The persuasive brother, Anders has a way with words. He possesses a healthy and undying thirst to explore his true potential and of course make it work to his benefit. Ty is the quiet and romantic guy who keeps things cool - or more to the point cold! Axl is the 21 year-old incarnation of great Norse god Odin, a big ask for a baby brother who struggles to make his own bed, let alone land a date! Last, but by no means least, there’s Cousin Olaf, the supposedly sage nomadic surfer dude - big on parties, little on clues.
The Johnsons are typical Kiwi blokes who don’t much like to stand out from the crowd. But faced with growing opposition from an alliance of resourceful Goddesses known as the Forces of Frigg these guys have got plenty to keep them busy. These every-day gods have everyday struggles - striving to love stroppy women, overcoming sibling rivalry and fulfilling your God-like destiny, all while still finding the time to enjoy a few beers with your mates.
