THE “AMERICAN GODS” PREMIERE IS THIS SUNDAY ON STARZ. DO NOT MISS IT.

Adapted from the Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker award-winning novel, “American Gods” is by far one of the most anticipated shows of the year, following Shadow (Ricky Whittle), as he finds himself in the midst of a brewing war hidden from the rest of mankind—one between Old Gods and New, thanks to Ian McShane’s mysterious Mr. Wednesday.

The show is produced by Freemantle Media North America, and is in the very capable hands of writers and showrunners Bryan Fuller (“Hannibal,” “Pushing Daisies,” “Heroes”) and Michael Green (“Logan,” “Blade Runner 2049,” “Alien: Covenant,” “Murder on the Orient Express,” “Kings,” “Heroes”). David Slade (“Hannibal,” “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”) is directing the pilot and additional episodes. FMNA’s Craig Cegielski and Stefanie Berk are executive producers along with Fuller, Green, Slade, Adam Kane and Neil Gaiman. Senior Vice Presidents of Original Programming Marta Fernandez and Ken Segna are the Starz executives in charge of “American Gods.”

The cast is fantastic- Ricky Whittle (“The 100”) as Shadow Moon; Ian McShane (“Deadwood,” “Ray Donovan”), Emily Browning (“Sucker Punch”), Pablo Schreiber (“Orange is the New Black”), Yetide Badaki (“Aquarius,” “Masters of Sex”), Bruce Langley (“Deadly Waters”), Crispin Glover (“Back to the Future”), Orlando Jones (“Madiba,” “Sleepy Hollow”), Gillian Anderson (“X-Files”), Kristin Chenoweth (Pushing Daises”), Peter Stormare (“Fargo”), and more.
