This evening we attended the European Premiere of American Gods, the Starz/Amazon TV series based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, held at One Marylebone.

The series stars Bruce Langley, Crispin Glover, Emily Browning, Ian McShane, Kristin Chenoweth, Orlando Jones, Pablo Schreiber, Peter Stormare, Ricky Whittle, and Yetide Badaki.

The show which has been created by Hannibal creator, Bryan Fuller and Michael Green will premiere on April the 30th on Starz in the US and will debut on Amazon in the UK. It will have eight episodes in its first season. Last month we spoke to author Neil Gaiman about the show, and his excitement for the project.

He told us,

“It’s astonishing. Bryan Fuller and Michael Green as showrunners have done this remarkable job of taking just the beginning of the novel and they’ve opened it up. It’s so powerful.”

Scott Davis and Colin Hart were on the red carpet for the premiere this evening – here’s how they got on.
