New Jersey’s Parlapanides Brothers’ Blood of Zeus Showing on Netflix

November 14, 2020

Straight outta Central Regional High School in Bayville, New Jersey, brothers Charley and Vlas Parlapanides have been making their mark in movies for a decade and have the animated ancient Greece feature Blood of Zeus on Netflix. 

The series centers on one of the illegitimate children of Zeus, and his son Heron, who is tested and challenged to save the world, the latest from the imaginative minds of the duo known for their films Immortals and Death Note. 

How did they make it big in a tough business? 

"The biggest thing that we took from growing up in New Jersey was just being tough and not taking No for an answer and believing in yourself," Charley told 92.7wobm's website. 

"That blue collar, tough New Jersey mentality just helps you survive in this business,” he said, pushing them through the inevitable rejections in the business until they succeeded with TV series, shows and documentaries. 

"We were blessed to have parents who believed in us and part of being successful is having someone believe in you and we had those parents,” said Vlas and they paid homage to their teachers.
