Ponca City Now - June 14, 2016 11:28 am

Sources close to the production of the Starz television program being partly filmed in Ponca City have confirmed the program is "American Gods," a series expected to air during 2017.

The Internet Movie Database (http:// www.imdb.com/title/tt1898069/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 A ) says a recently released ex-convict named Shadow meets a mysterious man who calls himself "Wednesday" and who knows more than he first seems to about Shadow’s life and past.

Austin Unruh with the Ponca City Tourism office has been working with Tulsa’s Mad Sweeny Productions for the past few weeks, helping scout locations for the episode. Most of the filming is being done in Toronto, he said, and scenes are being shot in about four other Oklahoma locations.

The TV series is based on "American Gods," a Hugo and Nebula Award -winning novel by Neil Gaiman , published in 2001.
