Neil Gaiman’s fantasy novel American Gods is one of the best works of the multi-talented author. The book is a fictionalized look at the history of religious idolatry in America. The idea of an adaptation has been bounced around for years, but was always considered too sprawling and complex to do it justice. However, with Brian Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies) steering the ship, the book may finally get the proper adaptation it deserves.

American Gods hits the Starz Network in 2017.
