About the Anansi Boys TV series.
On July 21, 2021, it was announced that Amazon had ordered a six-episode limited series adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s fantasy novel Anansi Boys. The show is produced by Amazon Studios, The Blank Corporation, Endor Productions, and Red Production Company.
Gaiman, Sir Lenny Henry, Douglas Mackinnon, Hanelle M. Culpepper, Hilary Bevan Jones and Richard Fee are executive producers. Gaiman and Henry will pen the script with Arvind Ethan David, Kara Smith, and Racheal Ofori. Culpepper (Star Trek: Picard) will direct the pilot. Jermain Julien (Grantchester) and Azhur Saleem (Doctor Who) are also directing for the series. Paul Frift will produce.
Anansi Boys follows Charlie Nancy, a young man who is used to being embarrassed by his estranged father. But when his father dies, Charlie discovers that his father was Anansi: trickster god of stories. And he learns that he has a brother. Now his brother, Spider, is entering Charlie’s life, determined to make it more interesting but making it a lot more dangerous. Anansi Boys is a stand-alone story, not a sequel or spin-off of Gaiman’s novel American Gods, but Mr. Nancy, who was played by Orlando Jones in the Starz adaptation, does appear in both books.
