Quote:
BBC Studios, the BBC’s main TV production arm, will be the production partner for a major new Amazon and BBC commissioned series Good Omens, a six-part comedy series based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman (American Gods) and Terry Pratchett (Colour Of Magic).
Set to broadcast in 2018 on Amazon Prime Video and the BBC, Good Omens is written by Gaiman, who will also serve as Showrunner. BBC Studios is co-producing the series with Narrativia and The Blank Corporation and in association with BBC Worldwide, who have licensed the global SVOD rights to Amazon. Good Omens will broadcast on the BBC in the UK, following its premiere on Prime Video.

Neil Gaiman, writer, says: “Almost 30 years ago Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest novel we could about the end of the world, populated with angels and demons, not to mention an 11 year-old Antichrist, witch-finders and the four horsepeople of the Apocalypse. It became many people's favourite book. Three decades later, it's going to make it to the screen. I can't think of anyone we'd rather make it with than BBC Studios, and I just wish Sir Terry was alive to see it.”

That sounds exciting! Will that include Amazon Prime here in the US? If so, I need to keep my subscription up....

Ars longa, vita brevis.

I'm sure it will be on Prime US.
