Neil Gaiman Clarifies the Sandman TV Show Situation
Vital Information for Your Everyday Life
I saw a bunch of press about whether there is or isn’t a Sandman TV series: as far as I know, nobody has actually optioned SANDMAN as a TV series from DC Comics, who own it. Eric Kripke (of Supernatural fame) pitched his approach to DC and to me last year, and we liked it and we liked him, but it didn’t feel quite right at that point, so we passed.
I think that this year the people at DC Comics (and me) will talk to a lot of people who want to make a Sandman TV series, and if we find the perfect person with the perfect way of treating the material, it’ll happen. And otherwise it won’t.

Well thank goodness for that. It seems that the rumors of Eric Kripke’s Sandman tv show, both the ones that said it was on and the ones that said it was off, were somewhat exaggerated, and Geoff John’s tweet may have just been a red herring.
