Congratulations to Neil Gaiman (Blood Kiss's Julian Cross) for the debut of the new television series, "American Gods" on the Starz network! He not only wrote the Hugo and Nebula Award winning novel American Gods (2001), but is now also a writer and executive producer on the series.
"The central premise of the novel is that gods and mythological creatures exist because people believe in them (a type of thoughtform). Immigrants to the United States brought with them spirits and gods. The power of these mythological beings has diminished as people's beliefs waned. New gods have arisen, reflecting the American obsessions with media, celebrity, technology, and drugs, among other things." (from Wikipedia, May 31, 2017)
Starring Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Crispin Glover, Gillian Anderson, and many more, the series has been green lit for a second season!
"People have said to me, 'Why wasn’t this a TV series, back when you wrote the book?!' It’s because you couldn’t put something like this on television without getting arrested." -Neil Gaiman on Collider.com
