Good Omens TV Series

Looks like Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's Good Omens is being adapted in to a 4 part TV series. Apparently Sir Terry announced it at the SFX awards a few nights ago

Link
Last week, a “semi-official” Terry Jones fansite reported that Jones and his current co-writer of choice, Gavin Scott, were “in talks” to write a new version of Good Omens. Within days, Pratchett himself took to the stage at the SFX Weekender and announced, at least sort of officially, that Good Omens was now headed to TV as a 4-part series.

Scott, if you don’t recognise his name, was a writer on Small Soliders and The Borrowers, as well as Jones’ upcoming feature film, Absolutely Anything.

One might assume it would be headed to Sky in a similar manner to the last few years of Discworld adaptations, but that’s not yet confirmed.

Part of me is leaping up and down shouting "YEEEESSS!!", but the adaptations haven't been great so far, so I'm not expecting miracles.

Shame the Terry Gilliam adaptation never happened. I'd like to see this make up for it.

Hopefully it will be good. "Good Omens" is one of my all time favorite books and not just because the anti-christ shares my name (Adam Young)
