"American Gods" Television Series by Neil Gaiman

14 likes

Congratulations to Neil Gaiman (Blood Kiss's Julian Cross) for the debut of the new television series, "American Gods" on the Starz network!  He not only wrote the Hugo and Nebula Award winning novel American Gods (2001), but is now also a writer and executive producer on the series.  

"The central premise of the novel is that gods and mythological creatures exist because people believe in them (a type of thoughtform). Immigrants to the United States brought with them spirits and gods. The power of these mythological beings has diminished as people's beliefs waned. New gods have arisen, reflecting the American obsessions with media, celebrity, technology, and drugs, among other things." (from Wikipedia, May 31, 2017)

Starring Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Crispin Glover, Gillian Anderson, and many more, the series has been green lit for a second season!

"People have said to me, 'Why wasn’t this a TV series, back when you wrote the book?!' It’s because you couldn’t put something like this on television without getting arrested." -Neil Gaiman on Collider.com

The Blood Kiss team got together recently for an afternoon of note-taking, idea-tossing, and script-reading! Pictured is the team of writers, editors, actors, and audience members who all got together to do a table read for the script. (Not pictured is one of our producers, who was behind the camera!) Some great ideas were discussed and points brought up, and we're looking forward to scratching out and scribbling in a few more things for the movie. Thank you for being a part of it!

Though Michael wasn't having as much of a "good talking day", as we call it, he wrote down some good notes and adjustments that his editors will be helping him implement. We look forward to getting the script locked down so we can start filming!

Regarding T-shirt Perks

Hello again, Everyone!

Just to be sure, we wanted to remind you that only the pledge tiers that included t-shirts are getting t-shirts shipped to them.  We did a general email blast to everyone because some backers bought t-shirts after the campaign ended.  We have a few extra shirts if you would like to buy one now.  Please message us directly if you are interested!

Stay thirsty!

Hello to our favorite blood thirsty people!

After much ado, we are now shipping the official t-shirts!  

Hot off the press!
Hot off the press!

Why the delay, you may ask?  There was such a slow response from everyone in getting their sizes, shapes, and confirming addresses that we had to wait... And then when we got things rolling with the printing company, we had to work with them to get the best quality possible.  This company was worth it.  They pulled through and the shirts are EPIC!  Please look for your shirt(s) at your doorstep sometime middle of next week.
