Neil Gaiman’s Sandman will be adapted into a TV series. Interestingly enough, the creator of Supernatural, Eric Kripke is rumored to be the showrunner. He’d actually be a perfect fit for the new series — his own show being a testament to that.
Sandman is a comic book written in 1989 about a character named Dream and his brothers and sisters — who are all essentially allegories. And the story deals with worlds-within-worlds.
The adaptation has a lot of potential, and it would be a smart move to put Eric Kripke at the helm.
