Valentine is a short-lived CW romantic comedy/drama fantasy about the Greek gods in modern times.

Canon

It was a short-lived show with only 8 episodes aired due to low ratings.

The show focuses on the Valentine family, a group of gods living amongst the humans in order to do whatever it takes to bring soulmates together. In modern times however the gods' methods have become less effective due to the lack of belief in the Greek gods, and unless they improve their matchmaking skills they will end up becoming mortal. As a result Grace, aka the goddess Aphrodite, has decided to recruit romance novelist Kate Providence to help them with getting soulmates together. With help from the fates and the Oracle of Delphi, now housed in a hot tub, it is up to the gods and Kate to help bring love back into people's lives.
