Anansi Boys Headed Towards TV, More Details Of American Gods Series

I expect there are a lot of questions about the American Gods TV series because there’s going to be a lot of the American Gods TV series – we’ve been pledged six series of 10 or 12 episodes apiece; and because there’s a lot of American Gods fans, with a lot of curiosity between us.

Neil Gaiman seems happy to share what answers he has. Here’s some of what he’s told MTV about the plans for the show:

The overall plan right now is that the first season would essentially be the book, the first book, with a few interesting divergences… and after that, there was always so more plot for American Gods on what happens to Shadow, what happens in the fallout of the events of American Gods, so we’re just going to follow it along.

Batting back a query about Anansi Boys, and the possibilities of that book providing the character of Mr. Nancy and extra story lines to the American Gods TV show, Gaiman revealed that, at least at the moment, plans were for Anansi Boys to be heading to TV as it’s own, standalone series:

It’ll be like the Good Omens TV miniseries that we’re currently working on… four one hour episodes or whatever.

After all of this, they really should cast Gaiman himself as the God of TV in the American Gods show. Could the flow from his fountain pen to the gogglebox be rolling any more smoothly right now?
