In an extremely exciting piece of news for Neil Gaiman fans, it was announced yesterday that FremantleMedia have picked up the rights to American Gods. While the project had initially been in development at HBO (the cable network responsible for the likes of Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones), it changed hands late last year.

FremantleMedia are perhaps best known for reality television such as Amercian Idol, The X Factor and America’s Got Talent, although they have recently made a move into scripted shows with the likes of the planned The Vampire Diaries spinoff and The Tomorrow People on The CW.

The press release can be read in full below, and it offers up a plot synopsis which should help give you an idea what to expect from the series if you’ve never read the book. Where exactly it will now end up – and when it will air – remains to be seen, »
