March 15 (UPI) -- Starz released a new trailer for its upcoming fantasy series American Gods Wednesday.
Based on Neil Gaiman's novel and starring Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber, Gillian Anderson, Kristin Chenoweth, Orlando Jones and Dane Cook, the contemporary, mythological action-drama is set to debut on April 30.
"When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew," said a synopsis accompanying the trailer.
"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."
