American Gods Showrunners Leave Show
- Page 1 of 1
Showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green have stepped down from the Fremantle-produced Neil Gaiman drama. A replacement has not yet been determined. Starz declined comment. Sources say Fuller and Green — who developed the series for TV — had creative differences with producers Fremantle over the show's (rapidly expanding) budget.https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/american-gods-showrunners-bryan-fuller-michael-green-exit-starz-drama-1062757
By reilo Go To Postwtf this is the worst newsIt's really not. American Gods didn't have the greatest reception both critical and ratings wise so it's very understandable that Showtime doesn't want the budget to rise to almost Game Of Thrones levels has it has been rumoured.
Fuller is magic. This is dumb.
It also doesn't help that they went with Amazon for the worldwide streaming rights as their worldwide presence is practically none outside the markets where they have local Amazon Prime and so they are less likely to make a better deal to keep the show on.
I think Fuller is a genius, Dead Like Me is an incredible show, he did the impossible with Hannibal but he has to understand that TV shows are still a business and the budget must be adjusted to the quantity of viewers that watch the show.
