Neil Gaiman Will Develop ‘Good Omens’ As A Six-Part TV Series | TV News
Neil Gaiman, the co-author of the novel has received Terry Pratchett‘s blessing, posthumously, to adapt their iconic work as a six-part TV series.
Good Omens is a modern retelling of the Antichrist myth and the end of the world, which focuses on the team efforts of the demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale to prevent the Apocalypse as they have gotten perfectly accustomed to their life on Earth, England, to be more precise. The ‘harbinger of the Apocalypse’, at the same time, due to some sloppy baby-swapping work in the hospital, has been living in Oxfordshire, blissfully unaware of his terrible destiny.
It would be a treat to see another of Neil Gaiman‘s books adapted and this Terry Pratchett/Neil Gaiman collaboration has been a favourite with readers and audiences for a while. Back in 2002, Terry Gilliam tried to direct a film, starring Robin Williams and Johnny Depp in the titular roles, but couldn’t secure funding and it eventually fell through. Here is to hoping that with Neil Gaiman‘s involvement Good Omens will come to our TV screens sooner.
