'Good Omens': David Tennant, Michael Sheen Suit Up For Amazon

Tennant (Crowley) sports a chic jeans, jacket and waistcoat combination with a skinny tie and shades, and Sheen (Aziraphale) matches his dazzling hairdo with a beige coat, suit and bow-tie with golden shoes. But since seeing is believing, we're even more jazzed about the angel-and-demon duo after having just won our first look at the stars in character.

Now, almost two decades later, the apocalyptic comedy novel will be adapted into a six-part series for Amazon, written entirely by Gaiman, who will also be serving as showrunner. The Hugo Award-winning writer has frequently written for television series like Doctor Who, and Babylon 5, but this will be his first time spearheading an adaptation of one of his works.

Good Omens, based on the novel by Pratchett and American Gods scribe Neil Gaiman, is a dark comedy about the preparations for the quickly impending apocalypse.

Shooting will continue for six months in London, Oxfordshire and South Africa.
