A Long Time In The Making

Novelist and comic book creator Neil Gaiman is no stranger to writing for television — from episodes of "Babylon 5" and "Doctor Who" to bringing his own book, "American Gods," to the Starz network. But for his latest mini-series for Amazon, "Good Omens," starring Michael Seen and David Tennant, Gaiman had the added task of honoring the memory of the late Terry Pratchett. In 1990, Gaiman and Pratchett co- wrote the novel, "Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnus Nutter, Witch." Before Pratchett's death in 2015, the two had hoped to bring the story to the screen but a production never came to light. In an interview at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, Gaiman told John Horn what it's like to finally bring "Good Omens" to television all these years later without Pratchett as a writing partner.
