Starz has been creeping into the Original Programming territory for quite some time now. With such hits like Spartacus, Da Vinci’s Demons, Power, Black Sails, and Outlander, they have now caught up on the other pay channels in regards to providing quality Original Programming. When it was announced that they would be adapting Neil Gaiman’s celebrated novel American Gods, fans were eagerly awaiting the adaptation. The show will follow Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) as he becomes a bodyguard for Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) and slowly be drawn into the fantasy world of deities and be central in the war between the Old Gods and New Gods.
Perhaps one of the most anticipated television adaptations in recent history, Neil Gaiman‘s American Gods has had a solid cult status practically since it was first published. The imagination and creativity that Gaiman put into every aspect of the story – from the wonderful imagery to the stark contrast between the modern setting and the ancient mythology – seemed like the perfect foundation for a great show. Since Starz announced in July 2014 that they would finally be adapting the novel for TV, fans have been lapping up every scrap of news they can find. (more…)

Development on the new American Gods series continues at a brisk pace with the announcement of new cast member Emily Browning. She will portray Laura Moon, the wife of Shadow Moon.
