HBO To Develop Neil Gaiman's <em>American Gods</em> Series

We already wrote about Neil Gaiman’s American Gods receiving a movie adaptation, as well as a contest to appear in the upcoming full-cast American Gods audiobook. Now, HBO is adapting Gaiman’s novel into a “potential” series, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

American Gods tells the story of an ex-convinct named Shadow, who ends up in a world filled with gods that only exist because people believe in them.

The project comes from Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman’s production company, Playtone, who also produced The Pacific and Band of Brothers.
