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.

WATCH| The American Gods official trailer.

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). 

WATCH|Neil Gaiman, novel author and executive producer of American Gods, Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, creators/writers/executive producers of the series give us their take on being named the most politically relevant show on TV.

WATCH| The creative team talks about bring the novel to life and casting the series.  While we can not imagine it any other way, Ian McShane almost didn't play Mr. Wednesday.  

WATCH| American Gods does not shy away from nudity.  The sex scenes are unlike anything you have ever seen -- provocative, beautiful, artistic and at times terrifying.  

WATCH| Refusing to leave the junket without a little tease of whats to come.  Kristin Chenoweth let us in on a secret.  

I hate to say this, but someone might be dethroned from our Sunday night line-up to make room for American Gods.
