Neil Gaiman Will Write Some Episodes of 'American Gods'

If, despite the assurances of co-showrunner Bryan Fuller, you're still concerned about how the acclaimed fantasy novel "American Gods" will translate to television, you can rest a bit easier: Author Neil Gaiman will be writing part of the Starz series.

Speaking with Collider, Fuller confirmed that the first two scripts are finished, adding that Gaiman "is going to be writing episodes of the show." He didn't indicate which episodes, but the author, who also serves as an executive producer, added on Twitter that, "I will write some, down the line."

Gaiman is, of course, no stranger to writing for television, having penned the 1996 BBC series "Neverwhere" and the "Doctor Who" episodes "The Doctor's Wife" (which won a Hugo Award) and "Nightmare in Silver."
