Exactly what it says on the tin, Gaiman's classic story about the ancient gods in modern America, served up by perhaps the most abused genius in the TV industry, Bryan Fuller (RIP, Hannibal, RIP, Pushing Daisies etc. etc.). It's been in gestation for years, but in a post-Game of Thrones world it did of course have significantly less trouble getting cleared. HBO ironically passed on it, though (madness), so it's being released on it's younger sibling Starz instead. Which also means that any sort of explicit material won't just not be skimped on but embraced with glee (yes, the scene with that poor guy getting, uh... "inhaled", is also included). Shadow is being played by Ricky Whittle from The 100, and the rest of the cast includes Emily Browning (Laura), Ian McShane (Wednesday), Gillian Anderson (Media) (also yas), Orlando Jones (Mr Nancy), Kristin Chenoweth (Easter), Peter Stormare (Czernobog), Dane Cook as that twat best friend who dies 5 seconds in etc. The early reviews have been excellent, it's eight episodes long and set to premiere on April 30.
