“American Gods” follows an ex-convict named Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) who, upon early release from prison, is hired as the bodyguard of a mysterious con man named Wednesday (Ian McShane). However, it’s soon revealed that Wednesday is an incarnation of All-Father Odin, who’s traveling America recruiting his fellow forgotten deities to wage an epic battle against the new American gods — manifestations of modern life and technology, like the internet, media and credit cards.
The series also stars Emily Browning as Shadow’s wife Laura; Pablo Schreiber as the down-on-his-luck leprechaun Mad Sweeney; Yetide Badaki as the love goddess Bilquis; Jonathan Tucker as Shadow’s philosophical adviser Low-Key Lyesmith; Crispin Glover as the seemingly omniscient Mr. World; Cloris Leachman as Zorya Vechernyaya, the eldest of three sisters who watch over the constellations; Peter Stormare as Czernobog, the Slavic god of darkness and evil; Chris Obi as Anubis, the Egyptian god of the dead; and Mousa Kraish as The Jinn.
Developed by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, "American Gods" is set to air on Starz next year.
