The success of American Gods and the buzz for Good Omens seem to have emboldened writer Neil Gaiman, as Deadline is reporting that he’s sticking around in the TV world to develop a new project that combines two of the medium’s favorite things: Anthologies and revivals of older shows. According to Deadline, Gaiman is working with The Jim Henson Company to make a “reimagined version” of Jim Henson’s ‘80s anthology series The Storyteller, with Gaiman specifically saying that he has a “binging” model in mind for the new take.

Henson’s original Storyteller featured John Hurt and centered around presentations of European folk tales with Henson’s typical flair for fantastical creatures. Gaiman will be writing and executive producing this new version, and his comments to Deadline make it sound like he’ll be digging into the lore of who the eponymous Storyteller is and why he’s telling the stories he tells. “What I’d love to do is an inside story that’s as long as the outside story,” Gaiman says, adding that his “inside story” will be set in a kingdom where “stories are forbidden” and that “the act of telling a story is liable and can get you imprisoned or executed.”

In other words, it sounds like Neil Gaiman at peak Neil Gaiman—at least until somebody lets him write a Sandman TV show.

But do you understand That none of this will matter Nothing can take your pain away

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
