After many years of wondering, fans of the The Sandman comic book series no longer have to wait, Neil Gaiman’s comic is finally coming to TV screens as a live-action series.
The scoop was picked up by The Hollywood Reporter:
“Netflix has signed what sources describe as a massive financial deal with Warner Bros. Television to adapt the best-seller into a live-action TV series. Sources familiar with the pact note it is the most expensive TV series that DC Entertainment has ever done. The drama has officially been picked up with an 11-episode order.”
Gaiman is on a Stephen King-like winning streak. He also had his books Good Omens (Amazon) and American Gods (Starz) adapted, both receiving critical acclaim.
At this point, it’s probably time to look over his entire catalogue to look for what’s coming next — Hollywood certainly is.
