American Gods is a fantasy drama television series based on Neil Gaiman‘s novel of the same name and developed by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green for the premium cable network Starz
Only days before his scheduled release from prison, Shadow Moon is told his wife has been killed in a car accident, and he is released early to attend the funeral. A series of events delays his trip home, during which time he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday. Wednesday repeatedly offers Shadow a job, which he refuses until Wednesday reveals that the job waiting for him at home no longer exists. Shadow accepts the offer to become Wednesday’s driver/assistant/bodyguard.
Shadow finds himself in a hidden world where magic is real, and where the Old Gods fear irrelevance amid the growing power of the New Gods, including Technology and Media. In a grand plan to combat the threat, Mr. Wednesday attempts to unite the Old Gods to defend their existence and rebuild the influence they have lost, leaving Shadow struggling to accept this new world and his place in it.
Composers Danny Bensi & Saunder Jurriaans (Enemy, The Ozarks) wrote the exciting and catchy score for this highly stylistic new season. The soundtrack also features the original song The Hangman
