'The Almighty Johnsons' premiere video: Meet the Norse gods of New Zealand
"The Almighty Johnsons" is a new kind of show for Syfy. An import from New Zealand (where three seasons have already aired), the show follows a family of brothers who are also Norse gods. Seriously. Watch the promo video to see that for yourself.
As you might guess, this is a comedic fantasy series. At the center of the story are the four Johnson brothers -- Axl, Mike, Anders and Ty. Each of them is the human version of a god, and each has funky magical powers. Meanwhile, other Norse gods and goddesses are running around and causing trouble -- all while having lots of sex and drinking lots of alcohol.
They're not exactly the best-behaved of gods.
"The Almighty Johnsons" premieres Friday, July 11 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy.
