HBO plans six season run for Neil Gaiman’s American Gods
Saturday, 29 June 2013
The book is about mystical beings, including Gods and fantasy creatures, existing in modern America.
A six-season runs seems a little ambitious: the show is slated for a late 2013 / early 2014 release but so far only has Robert Richardson (cinematographer for The Aviator, Hugo and Django Unchained) attached to direct, but it does show HBO’s (and production company Playtone’s) confidence in the material and the scripts produced by Gaiman and Richardson so far.
