The ‘American Gods’ TV Series Is Still In The Works

No longer at HBO, 'Gods' will be produced by Freemantle

Back in June of 2011, we learned that the Neil Gaiman novel American Gods was being developed into a TV series for HBO. Since that time, the plan to bring Gods to the small screen languished and then seemed to wither away. Today we learn the very good news that the project is still very much alive. American Gods is no longer in the hands of HBO and is now being produced by Freemantle Entertainment (the company that produces American Idol and The Tomorrow People on The CW) so it’s still headed for our small screens. As a huge Gaiman fan, I am very happy to learn that the project is still very much alive. More »
