Starz Gives Green Light To 'American Gods'

Starz has announced a script to series development of the urban fantasy novel  American Gods, the network announced Tuesday.

The fantasy-themed series pits traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots from around the world against an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs.  The pilot script will be penned by Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, Heroes) and Michael Green (The River, Kings, Heroes), who will also showrun the series.

“With our partners at FremantleMedia and with Bryan, Michael and Neil, we believe we can create a series that honors the book and does right by the fans and viewers,” says Starz Managing Director Carmi Zlotnik in a statement.
