Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is making its way to television via Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) and Starz with the fever for it at ear splitting levels. Sporting a cast of Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber, Yetide Badaki, Bruce Langley, Crispin Glover, Orlando Jones, Gillian Anderson, Kristen Chenoweth, Jonathan Tucker, Cloris Leachman, Peter Stormare, Chris Obi, Demore Barnes, Corbin Bernsen, and Mousa Kraish, with director David Slade (Hard Candy, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) – no expense has been spared on this fantasy epic.
Synopsis: “American Gods” posits a different kind of war brewing—one between Old Gods and New. The traditional Old Gods, with mythological roots from around the world, fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the New Gods. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory.
AMERICAN GODS premieres on STARZ 30 APRIL, 2017
