Neil Gaiman's 'The Sandman' Being Developed as a TV Series

It was only a matter of time before television producers began heavily using comic books as source material. After all, movie producers have been doing it for years.

Neil Gaiman's seminal comic book series 'The Sandman' has been floundering in film development since the mid '90s. It became obvious that the complex story lines and multiple characters arcs would play much better as a TV series. HBO and James Mangold began sniffing around the project, but never bit in.

Now The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Warner Bros. TV is in the process of grabbing the television rights for 'The Sandman' from its sister company, DC Entertainment. The company is also in talks with several writer-producers to develop the project, including 'Supernatural' creator Eric Kripke as the frontrunner. However, Kripke is expressing hesitation in tackling a project that already has such a passionate nerd following. Even the smallest details will be analyzed and criticized.

Doctor WhoAs the title says, the Goth Geek God himself, Neil Gaiman, has penned an episode of the British iconic program 'Doctor Who'. Gaiman has already written for television (including an episode of 'Babylon 5' and his British TV series 'Neverwhere') but this represents the first time he has written for a program that he actually watched as a child. If you listen carefully, you can hear all the nerd brains around the world exploding.

Gaiman himself announced this at a British sci-fi convention this past weekend and shocked everyone with this bombshell during an award acceptance speech. However, the folks behind our favorite Time Lord would not confirm Gaiman's statement. Hopefully he didn't jump the gun with this announcement. It would be a shame if he had to renege on it later.

The episode might be called 'The House of Nothing' (the announcement is nothing if not vague) and supposedly will air sometime in 2011, during the next season. Neil Gaiman, meet Matt Smith.
