15. Good Omens

Here is yet another Neil Gaiman series. With the success of American Gods, it would be great to see an adaptation for TV based on his comedy fantasy novel Good Omens, which Gaiman wrote with fellow fantasy legend, the late Terry Pratchett.

As mentioned before, it seems a lot of people seem to enjoy apocalyptic television series and having one that has a comedy tone might help this stand out from the rest.

Good Omens is the story about the Biblical end of the world, told from the point of view of an angel named Aziraphale and a demon named Crowley, neither of which want to see the apocalypse begin.

Taking its cues from the Bible, this story deals with the Antichrist (the son of Satan) being born and the angle and demon working to sabotage the entire apocalypse so they can continue living the life on Earth that they have grown to love.

The book also introduces the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, which could be amazing to bring to life on television. This is very similar to American Gods when it comes to ideas and themes and the idea of giant ridiculous situations brought to life.

There has been some talk of Gaiman writing a script to bring this to television, possibly with Amazon Prime as the destination, and if that happens, fans of the author should rejoice.
