Dante's Cove is a supernatural soap opera that aired on the LGBT-oriented TV network here! from 2005 to 2007. It is generally considered very bad but very entertaining.

Dante's Cove ran for three seasons with twelve total episodes. A fourth season was announce but never produced.[1] The later here! series The Lair (2007–2009) takes place in the same universe.

Stephen Amell, now best known as Oliver Queen on The CW's Arrow, appears as Adam in the first season but was recast in seasons two and three.

The first Pacificon in 2008 was known as "Bitchin' Party", a reference to Dante's Cove, and its events included a group viewing of the pilot. Escapade 2009 featured a panel on Dante's Cove and The Lair, discussing: "Does one work and the other not? Is one taking itself too seriously? What are they going to do next, other than the crackiest thing possible?"

Footage from the series is sometimes used as an external source in vids for other fandoms. For example, SDWolfpup's Due South constructed reality vid "That's All" uses a Dante's Cove clip that becomes RayK and RayV's clasping hands.
