American Gods gets the Game of Thrones Treatment

So word on the street is that HBO is looking at giving American Gods a giant key to the city. The key being a 60 episode, 6 season commitment, with a total budget of 35-40 Million dollars. That my friends is cray cray. Don't get me wrong, I'm super pumped to see a TV adaption of American Gods, I just can't believe HBO is willing to commit to 60 episodes and a truck full of cash to something as weird as American Gods. I mean we're not talking about proven genres like Band of Brothers or even Game of Thrones. American Gods is this really esoteric morality tale about reincarnated gods that most people have never heard of. It's cool and all, but it doesn't scream smash hit to me. Then again what do I know, I'm wacked out on ultrasounds and codeine right now.

Seems like fairy tales are becoming popular subjects for television shows. We've got "Grimm" and a couple others coming out. Not sure if it'll last.
