Interworld: Hamilton producer to develop TV adaption of Neil Gaiman novel
While buzz builds for American Gods, Starz’ upcoming adaption of the popular Neil Gaiman novel, the author has now landed another television adaption.
Interworld, the popular YA novel from Gaiman and Michael Reeves, is among the projects that is being put into development by Universal Cable Productions, the NBCUniversal-owned studio. Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller and his producing partner Flody Suarez are set to oversee the project.
The Gaiman and Reeves novel follows the story of Joey Harker, an adventurous teenager who is determined to save people in every possible dimension. In Interworld, every person is a slightly different version of Joey, whether it’s a difference in age or even species. They are deemed special by their ability to travel from dimension to dimension, which makes them targets.
“UCP continues to expand our genre slate and collaborate with luminaries from the world of graphic novels and science fiction,” said Dawn Olmstead, Universal Cable Productions’ EVP of development. “We’re proud and fortunate to be partnering with some of the most imaginative and talented auteurs in the business.”
The company also announced upcoming adaptions of multiple comics and graphic novels, including The Woods, Bushido, and The Good Neighbors.
