The delightful chaos wrought by Amazon Studios’ new Good Omens TV series at SXSW cannot be denied or ignored, literally. With such an enormously immersive marketing strategy, you’d expect it was being positioned as the next Game of Thrones or Westworld, both of which saw HBO employ similar tactics in years past. But, you’d be utterly and completely wrong.
Good Omens is something entirely different — and, if successful, could have the potential to usher in a new era of TV.
Bringing together creator/showrunner Neil Gaiman, seasoned British television director Douglas Mackinnon (Sherlock, Jekyll), and fan favorite actor David Tennant for Amazon Studio’s forthcoming TV series Good Omens not only means the show will impress, but also that it’ll be chock-full of references to Doctor Who.
There is a lot of buzz going around regarding the Amazon Prime Video original series, Good Omens, based on the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch. Pfeff-Bot (me!) of Geeks of Doom had the opportunity to interview the cast and creators of Good Omens following the electrifying New York Comic-Con panel and trailer release on Saturday afternoon, October 6th.
