SDCC 2018 – WATCH: Good Omens TV series gets poster and first look featurette

July 21st, 2018 by Marc Comments

I read Good Omens many, many years ago and it’s stayed with me ever since… a beautiful, funny, scary and unique adventure.

If the TV show can be half as good we’re in for a treat. Oh, and at SDCC Amazon confirmed that the one and only Frances McDormand is the voice of God.

Perfect.

The poster (above) is beautiful. The first look below looks like it’s on point.

The six-part television adaptation by BBC Studios of the best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett is currently in production in the UK and South Africa to launch globally on Amazon Prime Video in 2019, before also being shown in the UK on BBC Two at a later date.

Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex) and David Tennant (Jessica Jones) star as fussy angel and rare book dealer Aziraphale and the fast living demon Crowley, respectively. The cast also includes Jon Hamm (Baby Driver), Jack Whitehall (The Nutcracker and the Four Realms), Michael McKean (Better Call Saul), Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim: Uprising), Nina Sosanya (Strike Back: Retribution), Ned Dennehy (Peaky Blinders), Ariyon Bakare (Life), Mark Gatiss (Game of Thrones), Derek Jacobi (Murder on the Orient Express), Nick Offerman (Bad Times at the El Royale) and Miranda Richardson (Stronger).

Good Omens was commissioned for Amazon Prime Video and for BBC Two by Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two; Shane Allen, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning and BBC commissioning editor Gregor Sharp. It is being produced by the comedy team at BBC Studios, the BBC’s commercial production arm, Narrativia and The Blank Corporation, in association with BBC Worldwide.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
