Neil Gaiman Comments On ‘Sandman’ TV Project

2 min read

The on-again off-again nature of the TV adaptation of The Sandman continues to be amusing, leaving most fans to just watch and read about it but never feeling quite sure where it actually stands. There’s been a lot of discussion in the last couple of weeks thanks to Eric Kripke talking about the project and where he stood with it, but things get a bit clearer now that Gaiman himself has weighed in on the project on his site:

I saw a bunch of press about whether there is or isn’t a Sandman TV series: as far as I know, nobody has actually optioned SANDMAN as a TV series from DC Comics, who own it. Eric Kripke (of Supernatural fame) pitched his approach to DC and to me last year, and we liked it and we liked him, but it didn’t feel quite right at that point, so we passed. I think that this year the people at DC Comics (and me) will talk to a lot of people who want to make a Sandman TV series, and if we find the perfect person with the perfect way of treating the material, it’ll happen. And otherwise it won’t.
