"Hercules" is a 2005 RHI Entertainment television miniseries, chronicling the life of the legendary Greek hero, Hercules. It is most often aired on television as a two-part miniseries: the first part documents his early life in Tiryns and his desire and marriage to the lady Megara; the second part follows the more widely-recognised part of his life, in seeking redemption for the madness-induced murder of his family.

The series incorporates Hercules murder of his family—usually not included in modern interpretations of the character—and includes five of his twelve labors from Greek mythology. The series alters some of the elements of the myths including placing the giant Antaeus as while in Greek myths his father was the king of the gods, Zeus.
