Neil Gaiman is without a doubt one of the greatest fantasy writers of all time, and it’s no wonder that so many of his stories have been adapted in one way or another for various media. The latest? His YA novel co-written with Michael Reaves, InterWorld.

According to The Wrap, Gaiman’s novel will be adapted for TV with Hamilton (the Broadway hit) producers Jeffrey Seller and Flody Suarez, who will develop the new project for Universal Cable Productions. Both Gaiman and Reaves will act as executive producers on the series.

Published in 2007, InterWorld tells the story of dimension-walker Joey Harker who, along with a group of other Joeys from various other Earths in a bunch of different parallel universes (of different genders, ages and species, to boot) who have the same ability, try to stop the forces of magic and science from taking over all of the Earths in all worlds and all dimensions. A sequel, The Silver Dream, was published in 2013. The third and final book, Eternity's Wheel, was released in 2015.

One of Gaiman’s most iconic novels, American Gods, is currently in the works over at Starz for a 2017 premiere date, from showrunners Bryan Fuller (Star Trek) and Michael Green. Another of Gaiman’s works, this time adapted from his Lucifer Vertigo imprint (DC Comics) comic book series, will be returning for a hotly anticipated second season in the fall on Fox.
