Here’s the first big trailer for the American Gods TV series – coming to US television April 30th 2017 (Starz). This was created by Bryan Fuller and is, of course, based on the urban fantasy novel of the same name by author Neil Gaiman.
The series focuses on a convict with the street name of Shadow Moon (played by Ricky Whittle, teen heartthrob Lincoln from The CW’s post-apocalyptic scifi drama The 100), currently serving three years in prison.
With only a week remaining of his prison sentence, Shadow is granted early release after his wife Laura is killed.
Shadow finds himself next to a man named Wednesday (actor Ian McShane), who offers Shadow a job. Wednesday appears to be nothing but a con artist who needs Shadow as a bodyguard, but is in fact the god Odin.
Wednesday is making his way across America, gathering all the old gods, who have now incorporated themselves into American life, to confront the New Gods, including Media and Technology, who grow stronger.
