From writer-producers Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) and Michael Green (Heroes) and based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling novel, American Gods Season One is a visual feast focusing on an ex-convict named Shadow Moon and his sudden introduction into a power struggle between the Old and New Gods.

Here’s the official synopsis:
When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a hidden world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality and his place in it.
The upcoming Blu-ray and DVD releases feature over two hours of extra content for fans to enjoy. The Blu-ray will be priced at $39.99 while the DVD will be available for $34.98.
