“American Gods” is Getting Produced for Television Because the Gods Do Exist!

American Gods Banner

After being mired in production hell for what seemed like an eternity, Neil Gaiman’s fantasy road trip novel American Gods is finally being produced for a small screen near you. That’s your television if you’re confused.

Even better? Gaiman himself will be serving as executive producer on the project.

Great Odin’s raven is this really happening!?!

If you need a refresher, American Gods follows around ex-con Shadow who becomes a bodyguard and constant companion to the mysterious Mr. Wednesday, an Old God — I won’t ruin it and tell you which one — who is gathering his forces to fight the New Gods of the technologically advanced American landscape.

The project itself was acquired by FremantleMedia, who produced the former hit reality show “American Idol.”

Let the fantasy casting (no pun intended) begin!
