Bryan Fuller

Starz is developing an adaptation of American Gods from Hannibal's Bryan Fuller, the network announced Tuesday.

Based on the 2001 novel from Neil Gaiman, the drama tells the story of a war brewing between the old, traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots and the new gods reflecting society's modern love of money, technology, celebrity and drugs.

Fuller will write the pilot with Heroes' Michael Green, who will serve as showrunner. Both will produce with Gaiman.

"Neil Gaiman has created the holiest of holy toy boxes with American Gods and filled it with all manner of magical thing, born of new gods and old," Fuller said in a statement. "Michael Green and I are thrilled to crack this toy box wide open and unleash the fantastical titans of heaven and earth and Neil's vividly prolific imagination."
