American Gods

Neil Gaiman's American Gods is heading to television. The single novel by the famed British author is set to become a series on Starz. Starz has recently captured the essence of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon in a series going into its second season, but where Outlander is a part of a four book series, American Gods is a single book.

The series has only just been greenlit, so no cast have been chosen, but Bryan Fuller and Michael Green are on board as show-runners. Both previously worked on Heroes at NBC and Michael is working on the screenplay for the upcoming Blade Runner sequel.
