Neil Gaiman’s Sandman coming to TV

Fans of the massively popular Neil Gaiman series The Sandman” will be excited to hear that Warner Bros is currently attempting to acquire the rights to the comic book series for a television adaptation.

No word yet as to who is involved with the project although I imagine that Gaiman himself would have to be involved at least as a consultant. Given that Neil Gaiman has worked on television projects before (including an upcoming episode of Doctor Who!), we can hope that he’ll also be able to write an episode or two of the new show.

This is not the first time that an adaptation of The Sandman has been attempted. During the mid-nineties a movie version was planned but never came to pass.
