The series will focus on the mysterious Shadow, a man who is released
from prison a few days early after serving a three-year sentence for
bank robbery when his beloved wife Laura is killed in a car accident.
Flying home for the funeral, Shadow is seated next to a man who
introduces himself only as Mr. Wednesday, and this man knows more about
Shadow’s life, both past and present, than is possible. Shadow comes to
learn that Wednesday is, in fact, the god Odin
of Norse mythology and that all of the gods that mankind has ever
believed in are alive in human form and live among regular people.
Shadow is soon thrust into a gathering conflict between the Old gods and
the so-called “New gods”, the gods of money and technology who believe
there is no longer room on Earth for the old gods.
Thanks Orlando Jones for that genius idea.
I’d rather go down with the Gillovny ship too, then…. you know what…
Gillovniacs be careful while watching, this could hurt, but was a great therapy for me. I feel so much better now and my thoughts are sorted and positive!

round, a virgin will summon us from under the ground. Oh oh! We shall be
back, and the lives of all the children of Salem will be mine!”
