Join us on episode 00 for an introduction to the hosts of the podcast, the source material, and the cast & crew of the first season of American Gods premiering on Starz in the US on Sunday, April 30, 2017. Bryan Fuller is the main creative force behind developing the show based on the acclaimed book by Neil Gaiman. He is joined by but not limited to Dauri Chase, David Coatsworth, Adam Kane, and Michael Green. David Slade, Adam Kane, Vincenzo Natali, Guillermo Navarro, and Craig Zobel take rotating director’s duties with scripts by Fuller, Gaiman, Green, and Robert Richardson. The music is by Brian Reitzell with cinematography by Darran Tiernan, Jo Willems, and Aaron Morton. Most of these individuals are familiar names to the Fuller family, coming to this show from NBC’s Hannibal.

The cast for American Gods is nothing short of spectacular with Ricky Whittle poised to take American by storm as the lead character Shadow Moon. Fan favorite Ian McShane stars alongside Whittle as Mr. Wednesday with Orlando Jones rounding out the crew as Mr. Nancy. Yetide  Badaki and Pablo Schreiber appear early in the series as Bilquis and Mad Sweeney. Everyone is excited to see Peter Stormare as Czernobog.
