Neil Gaiman’s Interworld is Being Adapted For TV, While American Gods Get First Trailer
Yet another Neil Gaiman’s book is getting adapted into a series. This time it’s Neil Gaiman and Michael Reeves’ fantasy/sci-fi series, Interworld. According to IndieWire, Universal Cable Productions will be putting the series into development with Hamilton co-producer Jeffrey Seller.
Interworld follows the adventures of a teenage Joey Harker, who, together with a group of other Joeys from different Earths (Parallel Universes), try and stop the two forces from taking over all the Earths in different universes.
You’ll already know that Starz is bringing Neil Gaiman’s best selling novel American Gods to the small screen, Well Starz dropped a trailer for the series and it is amazing.
For those who have no idea what American Gods is, here’s the network’s official description:
The plot posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.

Universal Cable Productions has a few other projects in various stages of development that are based on comic that I’m not familiar with that include:
“The Woods,” James Tynion IV and Michael Dialynas’ story of 513 Milwaukee suburbanites suddenly transplanted into a giant, ancient wilderness on another planet. Michael Armbruster (“Beautiful Boy”) will write.
“Bushido,” about a young Dutch boy adopted by a samurai. Roy Lee (“The Departed,” “The Lego Movie”), Adam Stone (“The Voices”) will executive produce, and Markus Goerg, Dick Hillenbrand, and Mikhail Nayfeld of Heroes and Villains Entertainment will serve as co-executive producers. John Powers Middleton (“Bates Motel”) is attached to produce.
“The Good Neighbors,” Holly Black and Ted Naifeh’s tale of a faerie girl who has to travel from the human world to the faerie world to find her missing mother. Barbara Marshall will write, and Marshall, Jeremy Bell, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Jon Shestack will executive produce.
