‘Good Omens’ to launch on Amazon Prime Video in UK and around the world on 31 May
MUMBAI: A witty, epic tale set at the brink of the Apocalypse, Good Omens tells the adventurous story of a fussy angel, Aziraphale (Michael Sheen), and a loose-living demon, Crowley (David Tennant) – a pair of frenemies who’ve become overly fond of their lives on Earth and have formed an unlikely alliance to stop the world from ending.
The six-episode limited series is based on the beloved 1990 novel, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman – who also served as Showrunner. Douglas Mackinnon (Sherlock: The Abominable Bride) directs all six epsiodes.
The series also stars Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Michael McKean, Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman, Jack Whitehall, Josie Lawrence, Anna Maxwell Martin, Mireille Enos, and many more, and is produced by Amazon Studios, BBC Studios, The Blank Corporation and Narrativia. Neil Gaiman, Douglas Mackinnon, Chris Sussman, Simon Winstone and Rob Wilkins serve as Executive Producers.
