Starz picked up American Gods, which is an adaptation of Gaiman's 2001 book about a war between new and old gods. The series centers with the premise that gods and mythological creatures exist because people believe in them. The series follows Shadow who is an ex-convict who becomes the reluctant bodyguard and errand boy of Mr. Wednesday. Meanwhile, Wednesday is actually the god Odin, the Norse god of knowledge and wisdom, who tries to unite gods in an inevitable war of gods.
