Amazon has commissioned a TV series based on the Neil Gaiman novel 'Good Omens'. It will star Michael Sheen ('The Queen') and former Doctor Who David Tennant.

The six-part series will be set in 2018, with the apocalypse on the horizon.

Sheen will play an angel called Aziraphale, while Tennant plays a demon called Crowley.

Sheen has said that 'Good Omens' was one of his favourite stories. "To be part of the team entrusted with bringing it alive on screen is a bit of a dream come true to be honest," he said. "To work alongside Neil [Gaiman], who I think is one of the greatest storytellers of all time, is incredibly exciting. And, just like the rest of the world, I'm a huge fan of David [Tennant]'s."

Development of the show – based on Gaiman's first novel – began with fellow fantasy author Terry Pratchett back in 2011. Pratchett died in 2015.

The series is a co-production with the BBC. Once it's aired on Amazon Prime Video next year, it will be broadcast on the BBC.
