Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman” TV Series Back On

Following yesterday’s report that the proposed TV show adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s groundbreaking comic “Sandman” had fallen apart, DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns took to Twitter to deny the claim.

“Correction to world: The Sandman is AWAKE!. Psyched to be working with @neilhimself [Neil Gaiman] on developing one of the greatest series ever! Sandman in any form – comics to live action – doesn’t work without @neilhimself” said Johns.

“Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke was previously attached to develop the series and gave the quote about Sandman’s seeming demise during a panel for “Supernatural” at the Paley Fest on the weekend.
