HBO is preparing another television adaptation to follow up on the success of ‘Game Of Thrones’. This time, it’s ‘American Gods’, by acclaimed fantasy and science fiction author Neil Gaiman. The series is currently being planned out in no less than six seasons of 10-12 episodes each. The budget for each season will be in the $40 million range, with a heavy emphasis on CG. The earliest that American Gods would grace the airwaves would be 2013.
The central premise of "American Gods" is that gods and other mythological figures are real in the modern world, but their power and influence depends on the belief of humans (Source: HBO)
