With Good Omens now streaming on Amazon Video, I recently got to participate in a group interview in London with Jon Hamm and Adria Arjona. During the interview, they talked about the challenges of trying to make something that was famous for being unfilmable, how even though the story was written thirty years ago it’s still just as relevant today, what they learned about the project at the first read-through, when they feel like they’ve got a lock on their characters, and so much more.

If you haven’t seen the trailers or read the book, the six-episode series is based on the 1990 novel co-written by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett, and follows the angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and the demon Crowley (David Tennant), who have struck up an odd-ball friendship over the course of 6,000 years serving as emissaries on Earth. When news comes down of the impending apocalypse, the duo set about trying to delay the endtimes. The series also stars Nick Offerman, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Michael McKean, Anna Maxwell Martin, Mireille Enos, Frances McDormand as the voice of God, and Benedict Cumberbatch voicing Satan.

Reasons - Series - Anything - Television - Chemistry

One of the reasons I enjoyed this series is it is unlike anything else on television and the chemistry between Sheen and Tennant is palpable. It’s worth watching just to see the two of them interact. Thankfully, the rest of the cast is also fantastic and also worth your time.
