Tennant and Sheen: a demon and an angel
Amazon is set to release a 60-minute comedy series based on Terry Pratchett (Colour of Magic) and Neil Gaiman’s book Good Omens. Gaiman has already made his debut on Amazon Prime Video with the American Gods series. Amazon Studios will adapt Good Omens into a six-part series. Co-producing the show is the BBC.
David Tennant of Dr. Who fame and Michael Sheen, who previously starred in Amadeus will have the principal roles. Tennant will play the demon Crowley and Sheen will portray the angel Aziraphale who guarded the Garden of Eden after man’s slip into sin. The two team up to stop the Antichrist.

Tennant has expressed his pleasure in participating with the project calling it “a dream team dream gig.” Gaiman, in an earlier statement said, “Almost 30 years ago, Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest novel we could about the end of the world, populated with angels and demons, not to mention an 11-year old antichrist, witchfinders and the four horsepeople of the Apocalypse. It became many people's favorite book.”
