BBC News is reporting that Anansi Boys, Neil Gaiman’s 2005 fantasy novel, is being adapted into a BBC TV miniseries. Not much is known about how this is going to play out, but Gaiman is optimistic that the production company, Red, will be truthful to the material.
Anansi Boys, which won a British Fantasy Award, is about the two sons of the African trickster god Anansi, both polar opposites and meeting for the first time.
Gaiman appears to be on an adaptation streak. In addition to the film adaptations of his novels Coraline and Stardust, both American Gods and his Sandman graphic novels also recently got picked up and are getting the adaptation treatment.
