Seems like Fuller had a peak experience with Hannibal: he got to do essentially what he wanted while surrounded by actors he really enjoyed working with. Unfortunately, that show took an amazing amount of effort and sacrifice to realize, and it doesn't seem like he's willing to make those concessions right now.


Yeah, that's what? $7.5M USD in subscriptions if you are being generous? Ten million seems like a big ask for the season, much less an episode. How many CGI dragons did he need?

Ah well, shame, but it's not like if you enjoy his visual/artistic style you wont flit off to his next project. I know I'll be watching whatever this Anne Rice honeypot is...

edit: actually, after thinking on it for a minute, asking for $10M sounds like he was asking to get let go so he could go work on this vampire thing.

My amazon video sub was like $3 a month or something. I think it was the intro price which I signed up to then cancelled after watching American Gods.

It's really disappointing because the show was already doing a really good job making their own backstory and world that was imo a LOT better than what the book as pulling off, plus they had an amazing cast to do it with who are now it looks like losing interest.

Like at the end of the day Neil Gaiman being more closely involved makes me less interested not more

Perhaps it's in the nature of television. Just waves in space.


New showrunner announced, he worked with Fuller on Hannibal and Star Trek: Discovery

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/l...eason-2-1080813

Some interesting quotes in the article

quote:

Fuller and Green had already written the first six episodes of season two, with sources noting Fremantle planned to toss those scripts and start from scratch with Alexander. In addition to budget concerns, sources note Gaiman was also unhappy with the direction Fuller and Green planned to take season two as their vision was not a straight adaptation of his source material. Gaiman is said to have wanted a showrunner to come in and produce a straight take on his novel (which would include ignoring the cliffhanger from season one).

Iíd uh, really not be very happy if it starts to follow the book more because all the changed stuff in season 1 was much better than the book stuff, especially everything with Laura.

Hey. Just wanted to give you an update about my life. You ever stay in a shitty hotel with the TV chained to the wall? Well that's where I live now. I look at it and I think even if I could get the TV off the chain, I couldn't steal it because, I have nowhere to take it because, I have no home now.


So from gay porno Genie, to "get out of my house you dead whore" to, Gillian Anderson and Crispin Glover in a room with glitter dust nuclear missiles and unicorns - this show keeps getting better every episode. I'm on S01E05 and I can't believe things can get any more far out than they already have.

After every episode, I feel myself just like Shadow asking - "Is this real? Did that just happen?"

Yeah he never struck me as an petty obsessive guy, he's no Harlan Ellison that's for sure (though Neil did basically singlehandedly made getting autographed Harlan books really rare since he revealed that Harlan is retiring from signing autographs and posting the webstore where Harlan is selling signed books)

Originally it was supposed to be on NBC which, as we have seen on Hannibal, is okay for anything except unbloodied buttcracks.

I'm right with you and I can't believe I missed this show earlier. I can't remember the last time I felt so thrilled by an adaptation.

Yeah when he got Hannibal people were like, why did they give this dark serial killer drama to the guy who only makes quirky hyper-colorful shows about the power of friendship and love? And then he got more well-known for Hannibal and suddenly he was The Most Darkest Bloodiest TV Auteur.
