Last year it was revealed that Neil Gaiman would adapt Good Omens as a six part TV miniseries after receiving the blessing to do so in a posthumous letter from co-author Terry Pratchett.
Well, now we know the “when” and “where” of it. The series will be a collaboration between Amazon and the BBC, with the show premiering on both platforms in 2018. However, Amazon Prime Video will get it first, so those of us in the states can gloat for once. We’re coming for Doctor Who next!
“Almost 30 years ago, Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest novel we could about the end of the world, populated with angels and demons…” Gaiman said. “Three decades later, it’s going to make it to the screen. I can’t think of anyone we’d rather make it with than BBC Studios, and I just wish Sir Terry were alive to see it.”
Speaking of Doctor Who, former Doctor Who producer Caroline Skinner will be on board as an executive producer along with Chris Sussman, Rob Wilkins, and Rod Brown. Gaiman will act as showrunner.
