Neil Gaiman’s Short Stories to Be Adapted for U.K. TV

By Dianna Dilworth Comment

A collection of Neil Gaiman’s short stories are being adapted for a four-part television series which will air on U.K. satellite channel Sky Arts.

Sid Gentle Films, an independent production company founded by Sally Woodward Gentle in 2013, is producing the series which will be called Likely Stories. The Guardian has the scoop:

Details of the Gaiman adaptations are sketchy but the production company said that the series would be based on “the fantastical shorts stories from the pen of Neil Gaiman.” It added: “There will be an ensemble cast across all four of these tales”.

Shooting is due to start at the end of November, under the direction of Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, best known for their 2014 biopic of Nick Cave, 20,000 Days on Earth.
