Dante's Cove, a United States based LGBT themed soap opera show, dabbles in the supernatural. The series began showing on here!, a U.S. gay network, and also online, on Gay.com. Brainchild of Michael Costanza, with Sam Irvin, as director, Dante's Cove skillfully weaves aspects of drama and horror throughout. Protagonist Kevin, portrayed by Gregory Michael, and partner Toby, played by Charlie David, attempt to stay together, both against impacts of societal influences, and shady supernatural forces. Also, many of Dante's Cove residents practice a type of magic or spiritualism, known as Tresum. Now, practitioners mostly ascribe to these particular beliefs of which, are outlined in a Book. There are several Houses and each one ascribes to its own interpretations. The Sun and Moon versions are in Dante's Cove, yet the Book of the Sky isn't present, although people are aware of it, but know nothing of the contents. Non-practitioners are not able to read nor comprehend these books nor understand their teachings. Further, there are pages within both known books that are not legible to any Tresum practitioner. However, as the practitioners become stronger, and sometimes employ the services of the drug called Saint, they are more easily able to understand the books. Saint is a drug that gives a feeling of euphoria to non-practitioners, and enhances powers for the Tresum witches. For non-witches, also, the drug can sometimes bestow the gift of prophecy. For Tresum witches, Saint is truly a holy sacrament, enhancing understanding as well as ability. Further, in the finale, the two books merge into the actual Sky version, which are then able to be read by all the Tresum practitioners. Interestingly enough, Tresum House practitioners display similar powers. They manipulate reality, energy, they utilize teleportation, mind control, and other arts. The ruling body is the Council, which has the ability to proscribe and restrict Tresum, and they're at odds with Dante's Cove witches.
