WATCH|We sat down with the cast of Starz's new highly anticipated series (and your new favorite series),American Gods.
Based on the 2001 award winning novel by Neil Gaiman, American Godsis truly a show for everyone (except children!) -- blood, sex, culture, mysticism.
ABOUT AMERICAN GODS
Shadow Moon, played by the (hunky) Ricky Wittle is released from prison when he meets Mr. Wednesday, played by (the iconic) Ian McShane and his world is turned upside down. Hired as the mysterious Mr. Wednesday's personal body guard, Shadow is immersed into a world of magic.
In this hidden world, magic is real and this underground battle between the Old Gods and News Gods consistently brings us new colorful characters, metaphoric storylines and cinematic gold.
The show takes us on a road trip with Mr. Wednesday and Shadow Moon as they build a coalition of Old Gods (Gods of knowledge and wisdom, darkness and light) to defend their place in "new" America -- preparing for war with the New Gods (Gods of technology and media).
Not only is this show one of the sexiest shows on TV, it draws upon issues and topics all too relevant to today -- racism, immigration, gun control, woman's rights (to name a few).
