Netflix’s television adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman” comic is continuing to ramp up production! The streaming service unveiled new behind-the-scene footage of the upcoming series on Tuesday.
Netflix’s logline for the dark fantasy show reads: “A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, “The Sandman” follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.”
“Our art department, our set decorators, our production designers, they are wizards,” Gaiman said in the behind-the-scenes video. “They are absolute magicians and to see what they’ve conjured here, it’s like walking around inside your own dream. This is ‘Sandman’ being made for people who love ‘Sandman’ by people who love ‘Sandman.’”
“The Sandman” is executive produced by Allan Heinberg (“Wonder Woman,” “Grey’s Anatomy”), who also serves as showrunner. David S. Goyer (“Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight,” “Terminator: Dark Fate,” “Foundation) serves as an executive producer. Heinberg and Goyer co-wrote the series along with Gaiman, who is also an executive producer. Netflix has not announced a release date for “The Sandman,” which is produced by Warner Bros. Television.
Though several film and television adaptations of “The Sandman” have gone through various stages of development over the years, Netflix’s series will mark the first successful adaptation of the comic.
