'American Gods' Being Developed by Starz

Starz is on the works of developing a new series called American Gods. Bryan Fuller, Neil Gaiman and Michael Green will serve as executive producers.

The new project will be adapted from the 2001 novel of the same name penned by Neil Gaiman -- which was also translated into over 30 languages. 

Here's what you can expect from the biblical series:

The plot posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society's modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.

The pilot will also be written by Fuller, creator of NBC's Hannibal.
