The new Starz series "American Gods" premieres tonight at 9p. The show is adapted by Bryan Fuller ("Hannibal") and Michael Green ("Logan") from Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name. The first episode is directed by David Slade ("Hard Candy").

The fantasy series imagines a world in which gods exist, as long as people believe in them. That's why in humanity's modern society, their powers have been decreasing. This has given room for other gods to rise, gods that reflect modern day obsessions, like money, technology, and celebrity. Now, a war is brewing between the Old and New gods.

The cast features Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber, Orlando Jones, Crispin Glover, Gillian Anderson, Kristin Chenoweth, Cloris Leachman, Peter Stormare and Corbin Bernsen.
