Gaiman Explains American Gods TV Show, Has Brief Romance with Craig Ferguson

Neil Gaiman has been making the rounds recently speaking about a variety of topics and upcoming projects. Here’s he’s talking to MTV News about the new American Gods TV show and why it might which might not be the kind of TV series one would expect.

“The overall plan right now is that the first season would essentially be the first book, with a few interesting divergences,” Gaiman said to MTV News. He went on to illustrate what will come after the first season, “There was alway so much more plot for American Gods… what happens to Shadow and what happens in the fallout. So we’re just going to follow it along.” He also added that Anansi Boys would be a separate mini-series.

Then Gaiman and Craig Ferguson flirted with the idea of being lovers.

Here Ferguson suggests he and Gaiman should be lovers, then asks some (serious!) questions about how much an author owns of their work once the public gets it a hold of it. There’s also a comparison between watching Doctor Who and binge-drinking. Enjoy.

Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Stubby thinks Gaiman’s next project should be the biography of Stubby’s life, entitled: Speak, Rocket.
