Hey gang! STARZ and FremantleMedia North America have released a Comic-Con trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s AMERICAN GODS that gives us our first look at this interesting new series.

The series stars Ricky Whittle (“The 100”) as Shadow Moon, Ian McShane (“Deadwood”) as Mr. Wednesday, Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) as Laura Moon, Sean Harris (The Borgias) as Mad Sweeney, Yetide Badaki (“Aquarius”) as Bilquis, Bruce Langley (Deadly Waters) as Technical Boy, Crispin Glover (Back to the Future) as Mr World, and Jonathan Tucker (“Kingdom”) as Low Key Lyesmith. The series will also feature Gillian Anderson (“The X-Files”) as Media, Mousa Kraish (Superbad), Orlando Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Mr. Nancy, Cloris Leachman (“Raising Hope”), Peter Stormare (“Fargo”), Chris Obi (Snow White and the Huntsman) and Kristin Chenoweth as Easter.

American Gods is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Bryan Fuller (“Hannibal”, “Pushing Daisies”) and Michael Green (The River, Kings) serve as writers and showrunners. David Slade (Hannibal, 30 Days of Night) is directing the pilot and additional episodes. FMNA’s Craig Cegielski and Stefanie Berk are executive producing the series along with Fuller, Green, Slade and Neil Gaiman.

When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.
