UPDATE: Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman’ TV Series Gets 11-Episode Order at Netflix

Jul 1, 2019

After years of rumors and unsuccessful attempts, a ‘The Sandman’ television series is officially happening, at Netflix. The show is adapting the Vertigo comic book of the same name, from writer Neil Gaiman (‘American Gods,’ ‘Good Omens’).

The official logline of the dark fantasy is below:

“A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic–and human–mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.”

Allan Heinberg serves as writer and showrunner on the series. He has both a story and screenplay credit on another recent DC project, Patty Jenkins’ ‘Wonder Woman.’ His other credits include ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Scandal,’ and ‘The Catch.’

Additionally, Heinberg, Gaiman, and David S. Goyer (‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ ‘Krypton’) will co-write the pilot.

Further, ‘Sandman’ will be the most expensive TV series from DC Entertainment. The season will consist of 11 episodes.
