Neil Gaiman made the announcement Tuesday on his Twitter account, writing “So for anybody wondering… The amazing Brian Cox plays Death in #GoodOmens. This is what Death looks like, when he’s not on a motorbike anyway. (Watch the trailer tomorrow.)”
Amazon will debut the six-episode adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s acclaimed fantasy novel, which stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant as an angel and demon, respectfully, who form an unlikely friendship over centuries of living comfortably on Earth.
Set as the end of the world approaches, the series follows fussy angel, Aziraphale (Sheen), and a loose-living demon, Crowley (Tennant), who are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon as the end of the world approaches.
