Geekery: ‘Good Omens’ – Satan thy Name is Cumberbatch
Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s dark comedy about a demon and an angel try to fend off the apocalypse is coming to Amazon in May with a newly announced devil.
The beloved novel has been turned into a radio drama for BBC Radio 4 featuring the voices of Mark Heap and Peter Serafinowicz. Now it’s getting the small screen treatment with a 6 part series directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Doctor Who, Sherlock). Author Neil Gaiman is showrunner and adapted the screenplay.
“A tale of the bungling of Armageddon features an angel, a demon, an 11-year-old Antichrist, and a doom-saying witch.”
The most recent news: Benedict Cumberbatch is playing Satan, the series is out May 31st, and here are the neat, animated opening credits:
