American Gods to air in the UK on the 1st May

One of the big upcoming shows of the year is the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods, with Bryan Fuller acting as showrunner for the eight episode TV series on Starz. And now, Deadline has revealed that the show will premiere on the 30th April in the States.

For UK viewers, that means we'll be getting the first episode of American Gods on Amazon Prime on May 1st.

Check out the synopsis for the series...

American Gods pits Old Gods against New Gods, with the ancient mythological ones fearing irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the younger deities. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory.

American Gods has attracted an impressive cast; in addition to Whittle and Shane, it stars Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber, Yetide Badaki, Bruce Langley, Crispin Glover, Orlando Jones, Gillian Anderson, Kristin Chenoweth, Jonathan Tucker, Cloris Leachman, Peter Stormare, Chris Obi, Demore Barnes, Corbin Bernsen and Mousa Kraish.
