Amazon Prime to screen Good Omens in May

Amazon Prime will screen its original TV adaptation of Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman on 31st May with a tie-in edition of the book due to be published to coincide with the show. 

The joint Amazon Prime original and BBC production comprised of six, one-hour episodes, features an all-star cast including David Tennant and Michael Sheen in lead roles, alongside John Hamm, Frances McDormand, Jack Whitehall and Miranda Richardson.  

First published in 1990, Good Omens (Corgi) is a comedy about the birth of the son of Satan, and the coming of the End Times. Gaiman adapted the book for TV with the script staying true to the book that he and Pratchett wrote together.

Corgi revealed the cover of their official TV tie-in edition of the book which will be published in early May.  The cover, that has been designed around Prime's key art for the series, features actors Sheen and Tennant sitting on top of the world.

"Good Omens" will be screened at a later date on BBC2.
