American Gods TV Series

Released from prison, Shadow finds his world turned upside down. His wife has been killed; a mysterious stranger offers him a job. But Mr. Wednesday, who knows more about Shadow than is possible, warns that a storm is coming -- a battle for the very soul of America . . . and they are in its direct path.

One of the most talked-about books of the new millennium, American Gods is a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth and across an American landscape at once eerily familiar and utterly alien. It is, quite simply, a contemporary masterpiece.

HBO is now making a TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s novel  and the producer will be Gary Goetzman.

Apparently the book will be divided in six seasons and each one will contain around 10 to 12 episodes. With a budget of 35-40 million dollars budget for season (so  something like $2,916,666 to $4,000,000 per episode) the serie will start screening in 2013 or later.

As a huge fan of Neil Gaiman's works I can't wait to see the results and witness Shadow's adventures on the screen.
