Tom Hanks is All in for American Gods

Posted by Michael Sacco on Jun 12, 2011 in Television |

Genre fans the world over rejoiced when the news broke that HBO had optioned Neil Gaiman’s American Gods for production into a TV series under the direction of Playtone. Now it looks like there’s even more good news — Tom Hanks has officially signed on to the project as executive producer, with Gaiman as head writer and executive producer himself. The six planned seasons are 10-12 episodes each, and the budget ($35-40 million per season) is fairly high, but bear in mind it’s probably going to be a while: HBO is aiming for a 2013 release “at the earliest.”
