Comments Off on AMERICAN GODS: Starz Orders Adaptation of Neil Gaiman Book

Starz has officially ordered AMERICAN GODS, the network announced. The series will be based on the Neil Gaiman novel. (And Gaiman will be an executive producer on the show.) Bryan Fuller and Michael Green will showrun the series.

“STARZ is committed to bring AMERICAN GODS to its legions of fans,” Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said in a statement. “With our partners at FremantleMedia and with [showrunners] Bryan, Michael and Neil guiding the project, we hope to create a series that honors the book and does right by the fans, who have been casting it in their minds for years. The search for Shadow begins today!”

“I am thrilled, ‎scared, delighted, nervous and a ball of glorious anticipation,” said Neil Gaiman. “The team that is going to bring the world of AMERICAN GODS to the screen has been assembled like the master criminals in a caper movie: I’m relieved and confident that my baby is in good hands. Now we finally move to the exciting business that fans have been doing for the last dozen years: casting our Shadow, our Wednesday, our Laura…”

“Almost 15 years ago, Neil Gaiman filled a toy box with gods and magic and we are thrilled to finally crack it open and play,” said Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. “We’re grateful to have STARZ above us and FremantleMedia at our backs as we appease the gods, American or otherwise.”

Comments Off on THE CHAIR: STARZ Releasing Five Episodes Pre-Official Launch

Starz is releasing five episodes of its upcoming documentary series, THE CHAIR, early to subscribers via Starz Play and Starz VOD.

“Starz is making the first five episodes of THE CHAIR available on the same day of the television premiere of the series to reach a young adult population that is in the vanguard of ‘bingeing’ on shows as their preferred method of viewing,” said Chris Albrecht, CEO of Starz in a statement. “Starz is always interested in moving the premium programming model forward with strategies that are attuned to the projected audience demos of the show. We are once again utilizing an exposure tactic that has intrigued us since we first did it with last year’s limited series DANCING ON THE EDGE.”

THE CHAIR is a unique series that follows the filmmaking process as two first-time directors attempt to make their own separate films — from the same script.

The series officially debuts on Starz on Saturday, September 6th at 11 PM.
