The Almighty Johnsons

Michael directed two episodes in season 3, in February - April 2013.

Created by James Griffin and Rachel Lang, produced by South Pacific Pictures.
It aired on TV3 in NZ, Network Ten in Australia, SyFy in the US and UK, and on Space in Canada. 
Filmed in New Zealand.

The four Johnson brothers -- Mike, Anders, Ty and Axl -- have inherited the powers of the Norse gods. Because the gods lived eons
ago, however, time has diluted their powers. The unique ability that each brother possesses isn't very strong, and they still have the
same desires and faults that mortals do. Their lives include sibling rivalry, trying to get girls, and hanging out; but they also want
to be stronger, and so they embark on a quest to fulfill an ancient prophecy in hope of gaining the full strength of their abilities.

The Almighty Johnsons premiered on 11 July 2014.  It starred Emmett Skilton as Axl Johnson (Odin), Tim Balme as Mike Johnson (Ullr),
Dean O'Gorman as Anders Johnson (Bragi), Jared Turner as Ty Johnson (Hoor), Ben Barrington as Olaf Johnson (Baldr), Hayden
