Neil Gaiman short stories to receive adaptation in British TV series
The acclaimed fantasy author will have four short stories turned into TV episodes.
Acclaimed fantasy author Neil Gaiman has already seen one of his short stories move into production earlier this year—the award-winning “How to Talk to Girls at Parties.” Now, The Guardian reports that four more of his short tales will receive their own onscreen adaptation in an upcoming anthology TV series from British network Sky Arts.
Titled Neil Gaiman’s Likely Stories, the series begins shooting late next month, with independent documentary filmmakers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard heading the production.
Details, including which of Gaiman’s short stories will be chosen for the four-part series, are sketchy, but the production company behind the series, Sid Gentle Films, described the show as “fantastical” with an ensemble cast.
This is the second screen adaptation of a work by Gaiman to be announced in two weeks: Last week, news broke of a hybrid animated adaptation of Gaiman’s 2014 children’s book Fortunately, the Milk. Edgar Wright will direct the film with plans to star Johnny Depp.
Additionally, his iconic comic Sandman, which first launched him into the geek scene in the ’90s, is finally being adapted for film with Joseph Gordon-Levitt at the helm. A recently issued prequel comic, Sandman: Overture, released earlier this year from Vertigo, receives a hardcover deluxe edition out next month.
It looks as though 2016 will be a banner year for Gaiman fans. Here’s hoping the momentum for more of Gaiman’s works onscreen will finally be enough to bring us that perennially stalled film adaptation of Good Omens.
