It’s hard to believe that both this project – which involves a pantheon of ancient gods both old and new, from Odin and Anubis to the newly minted god of technology – and Preacher are finally happening on TV. Sacreligious depictions of deities are the new black. Or actually, given the way both Neil Gaiman and Jesse Custer dress, they’re the old black too.
The series was developed and written by Hannibal and Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller and Kings creator Michael Green who will executive produce and showrun. Gaiman also will executive produce the series, which is launching a casting search for the lead role of Shadow Moon.
And it will air on the same network as Ash vs. Evil Dead. I officially have Starz in my eyez now.
