Starz Orders American Gods Adaptation
After years of languishing in development hell, Starz has announced that the long-awaited adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods
is finally going to become reality.
Very few details are known about the ins and outs of the series, including any casting choices, but the news behind the show's creative team is promising. The show will be steered by Hannibal
showrunner Bryan Fuller (which doesn't mean anything regarding the potential for a fourth season for that much beloved, if depressingly low rated, series) and Michael Green (creator of the gone-to-soon Kings
While it will likely still be some time before casting choices and details like premiere dates are announced, Gaiman himself is thrilled to see his novel, which follows ancient deities as they wander the modern world, turned into a series.
"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," Gaiman said in a statement.
