Neil Gaiman’s extensive and groundbreaking writing career includes beloved works of fiction, comics, radio drama, film, and series and we are excited to present a BSS 2022 conversation with Neil about his screenwork.
Neil has been in Scotland co-showrunning two Amazon Prime series that are adaptations of his novels: Good Omens (2019-22) currently in production for its second season and Anansi Boys, also currently filming. He is possibly best known for his DC comic book series The Sandman first published in 1989. In 2020 the comic books were adapted by Neil and Dirk Maggs into a multicast audiobook for Audible, of which the first two installments are out now and the third is coming late 2022. The Netflix series follows, with Neil executive producing, writing and co-showrunning this live-action adaptation, currently in post-production.
This conversation will cover these recent adaptations, discussing the joys and constraints of adapting his stories into a live-action series; bringing worlds and characters he created in the past into the present; and steering these projects in his role as showrunner.
Neil will join us via live stream
