Bryan Fuller Developing Series From Neil Gaiman's American Gods
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.01.2014



HBO was unable to crack the code of Neil Gaiman's award-winning urban mythological fantasy American Gods, but Starz has a celebrated TV veteran ready to take a shot at it. TV Line reports that Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) and Michael Green (The River) are working on an adaptation of the novel. The two will be showrunners on the possible series with Gaiman as an executive producer.

The novel focuses on an ex-convict named Shadow, who finds himself under the employ of mysterious Wednesday (in truth, the god Odin) as a bodyguard. Wednesday leads Shadow on a cross-country trip of America in which they encounter various dieties who were brought to America in ancient times by the belief of the country's immigrants; however America's increasing obsession with technology, media, celebrity and more have caused the gods' influence to wave and left them down and out. These obsessions have manifested as the New Gods, who Wednesday is rallying the Old Gods against in a battle for supremacy.

A previous adaptation was in the works at HBO and rumors had persisted of a six-season run that would introduce new material alongside the novel's elements, but the series was never officially greenlit and HBO put the project into turnaround because they could not get the script right.

Fuller said in a statement, "Neil Gaiman has created the holiest of holy toy boxes with American Gods and filled it with all manner of magical thing, born of new gods and old. Michael Green and I are thrilled to crack this toy box wide open and unleash the fantastical titans of heaven and earth and Neil's vividly prolific imagination."
