Neil Gaiman’s American Gods Greenlit For Television
American Gods is finally getting its long awaited TV adaptation. Neil Gaiman's book will be produced for television by American Network Starz and Freemantle Media. Gaiman will be on board as executive producer while Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) and Michael Green (Heroes) will act as show runners.
American Gods find a number of gods losing followers in modern society, resulting in a war between them.
On the announcement, Gaiman said “I am thrilled, ‎scared, delighted, nervous and a ball of glorious anticipation. The team that is going to bring the world of American Gods to the screen has been assembled like the master criminals in a caper movie: I'm relieved and confident that my baby is in good hands. Now we finally move to the exciting business that fans have been doing for the last dozen years: casting our Shadow, our Wednesday, our Laura…”
Fuller and Green added “Almost 15 years ago, Neil Gaiman filled a toy box with gods and magic and we are thrilled to finally crack it open and play. We're grateful to have STARZ above us and FremantleMedia at our backs as we appease the gods, American or otherwise.”
More news as we have it.
