Gillian Anderson has joined the cast Starz’s adaption of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. In the series about Old and New Gods, Anderson will be playing the role of Media, the representative for the New Gods. She thrives on attention and worship that people give to their electronic devices, such as TVs and phones.




Executive producer and co-writer Brian Fuller and Anderson have worked together before, on the series Hannibal.  Fuller co-wrote the script for American Gods with Michael Green. The two are also working as co-showrunners.  David Slade will be in the director’s chair for several episodes, including the pilot.


American Gods centers on the battle brewing between the Old Gods and the New Gods. The Old Gods are rooted in mythology and the religions of days gone by. The New Gods have found their footing thanks to people’s obsession with money, technology, celebrities, and drugs.


Gillian Anderson will co-star along side Ricky Whittle (Shadow Moon), Ian McShane (Mr. Wednesday), Emily Browning (Laura Moon), Yetide Badaki (Bilquis), Bruce Langley (Technical Boy), Cloris Leachman (Zorya Vechernyaya), Peter Stormare (Czernobog), Jonathan Tucker (Low Key Lyesmith), Crispin Glover (Mr. World), Mousa Kraish (The Jinn), Chris Obi (Anubis), Pablo Schreiber (Mad Sweeney) and others.
