"Valentine" (TV-) (HDTV)
THE LOVE GODS ARE ON THE CASE IN NEW DRAMA FROM PRODUCER KEVIN MURPHY ("DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES" AND "REAPER") � The Greek gods of ancient mythology are alive and well, living among us in modern day Los Angeles. Sent down from Mount Olympus to bring soul mates together, the Valentine family uses unconventional methods along with a little old fashioned magic to ensure that true love blossoms on Earth. Grace Valentine (Jaime Murray, "Dexter"), better known as Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, is concerned for the future of her family business, as well as the family's immortality. To bring a fresh perspective to the job of matchmaking, Grace enlists the help of romance novelist Kate Providence (Christine Lakin, "Georgia Rule"), much to the chagrin of Grace's son Danny (Kristoffer Polaha, "Mad Men"), a.k.a. Eros, The God of Erotic Love. Meanwhile, the Valentines come to the aid of best friends Joanna (guest star Lauren Cohan) and Roland (guest star Mike Faiola). Roland's crazy about Joanna, but she can't see past their friendship. When the gods learn that Joanna plans to run off with another man, they harness their magic to give Roland a shot at his true love. Also starring Autumn Reeser ("The O.C.") as Phoebe, a.k.a. the Goddess of the Oracle at Delphi, and Robert Baker ("Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull") as Leo, a.k.a. Hercules. Kevin Dowling directed the pilot written by Kevin Murphy (#101).
