Starz To Adapt 'American Gods' For Television

7 July 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Starz is developing a television show based on Neil Gaiman's fantasy novel "American Gods," to be produced by FremantleMedia North America. The project was previously in the works at HBO, but the show never got off the ground thanks to script problems. Once the rights became available, Starz jumped at the opportunity to adapt Gaiman's coveted novel. The pilot for "American Gods" will be written by Bryan Fuller ("Hannibal," "Pushing Daisies," "Heroes") and Michael Green, who also worked on "Heroes" in addition to "The River" and "Kings." No word yet on who will direct, but Fuller and Green will serve as showrunners for the series. Gaiman, author of "American Gods," will executive produce. Published in 2001, "American Gods" posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional »

Why Adapting Neil Gaiman’s American Gods for TV Is a Bad Idea

7 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Predictably, nerds went bonkers over the news that Starz is developing a TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman's best-selling prose novel, American Gods, to be helmed by Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller and Heroes scribe Michael Green. "Holy hell," io9.com declared. "We are freaking out." "Everything is good and right with the world forever and ever amen," proclaimed geek-news site The Mary Sue. "Holy Crap Bryan Fuller Is Doing American Gods Holy Crap," mused Vanity Fair's Joanna Robinson. Okay, let's slow down here. There's no doubt that Gaiman is one of the greatest sci-fi/fantasy writers of his generation, and Bryan Fuller is more than capable of creating top-notch magical realism (he created Pushing Daisies, after all). But this news does not deserve such unrestrained optimism. Put simply: American Gods has not aged well, and will need some serious retooling to make it watchable today.When Gaiman's novel hit shelves »

News

Arrow has cast a new Count Vertigo. TVGuide reports that Peter Stormare has been cast as Werner Zytle, who takes over the Count Vertigo name.

I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the idea of Lifetime’s The Lottery. At least, I’ve been trying to imagine how a drama about a dark future for humanity would work on Lifetime. Here’s the first trailer for the series:

This season, the winner of So You Think You Can Dance will win a role on the Broadway revival of On the Town — provided the show is running when there’s an opening in the cast.

Fringe alum Georgina Haig has been picked to play Elsa in Once Upon a Time‘s Frozen Storyline.

Morning After observes that seeing Tori Spelling‘s Mystery Girls so soon after her raw reality show True Tori finished makes her the real life version of The Combeback. »

Neil Gaiman's American Gods Coming to Starz

3 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A small screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods has been in development since 2011. It finally has the steam it's been looking for to rocket into production. It was originally set up with HBO and Tom Hanks' production company Playtone. It is now going to be developed at Starz with FremantleMedia under the guidance of producers Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, Heroes) and Michael Green (The River, Kings, Heroes).

The plot centers on "a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces »

Bryan Fuller adapting Neil Gaiman's American Gods for Starz

Hannibal's Bryan Fuller and Heroes' Michael Green are adapting American Gods for the Starz network...

News

Fans have been following the twisty history of American Gods' planned TV adaptation for some time. After HBO and Cinemax tried but failed to translate Neil Gaiman's expansive 2001 fantasy novel to the small screen, FremantleMedia picked up the rights earlier this year. Now, it looks as though things are really motoring, and a couple of particularly interesting names have joined the creative team.

First up is Bryan Fuller, the talent behind current NBC hit, Hannibal, and the man who gave us Dead Like MeWonderfalls and Pushing Daisies. Fuller is co-writing the American Gods pilot with Heroes and Smallville's Michael Green, who will also showrun the series for Us network, Starz. That, as anybody will tell you, is what's known as a result.

American Gods Finds A Second Chance On Starz

1 July 2014 7:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

American Gods, an urban fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman, is getting a second chance on becoming a television series thanks to FreemantleMedia North America and Starz. The project was previously in development at HBO but hit a snag along the way and never panned out. The story centers around a man named Shadow who is caught in the middle of a conflict between the old and new gods.

The network has given the project a script to series development order which is a gamble, but with the pilot written by Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, Heroes) and Michael Green (The River, Kings, Heroes) definitely more of a low risk one. Both writers will stay on as showrunners, and will also take on the executive producer role along with Gaiman.

Gaiman released the following statement about the project, and it sounds like he’s certainly on board with the development of this project thus far. »

Starz Resurrects Neil Gaiman’s American Gods

1 July 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

It’s been so long that I can’t even remember when I started hearing about a potential treatment of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, but it looks like we’ve finally gotten to the stage that lets us celebrate. Starz will be developing it as a series, and it sounds like Neil Gaiman thinks he’s finally got the right situation to make things happen the way that he, and fans, will be satisfied with.

If it’s even half the caliber of the book, we should be in for something special. Of course, there’s a long road between then and now, and anything can happen.

Check out all the info below, and let me know what you think.

Starz Developing American Gods TV Show; Bryan Fuller and Michael Green to Act as Showrunners

1 July 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though Neil Gaiman fans were surely disappointed to hear that HBO recently let its option on the novel American Gods lapse, there is now reason to rejoice.  Starz announced today that it will develop its own American Gods TV show, with Hannibal and Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller acting as showrunner alongside Heroes alum Michael Green.  The two will pen the pilot script for the adaptation, which revolves around a brewing war between the traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots and the new gods reflecting society’s obsession with money, technology, media, celebrity, and drugs.  The crux of the story follows Shadow Moon, an ex-con who teams up with a conman traveling partner to gather forces in preparation for battle. It’s certainly an ambitious undertaking (HBO's plans involved a $35-40 million budget per season), but Fuller has shown his knack for creative genius time and time again, so »

Despite the failure of HBO to realize Neil Gaiman's novel American Gods as a cable series does not mean that no one else will have the balls to try and make it happen. HBO has been home to countless quality programs over the years, including the fantasy epic Game Of Thrones, but they just could not find a way to make American Gods happen. Starz is going to give it a shot and they may have found the perfect candidate to run it. Hannibal and Pushing Daisies showrunner Bryan Fuller has been »

‘Hannibal’ Showrunner Bryan Fuller Talks Season 3 & Dream Casting

30 June 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

After only two seasons, NBC’s Hannibal has already earned itself a reputation for shocking season finales that leave fans clamoring for the next chapter of the story. While its ratings remain fairly modest, Hannibal is something of a prestige project for the network and has been heaped with praise from reviewers, as well as gaining a dedicated fan following.

The show was created by Bryan Fuller, whose TV projects so far have had a rather unfortunate habit of never quite managing to make it beyond a second season. Fuller was responsible for the dark humor of grim reaper tale Dead Like Me and resurrection love story Pushing Daisies, as well as short-lived comedy drama series Wonderfalls, in which the ...
