Neil Gaiman's 'Dead Boy Detectives' gets a TV pilot at HBO Max

Many of Neil Gaiman's characters have been adapted to TV and film ranging from a curious little girl, an angel and a demon, and even a god of death. Now a couple more of his iconic characters are being brought to life for the small screen. The author’s Dead Boy Detectives is being adapted for a TV pilot on HBO Max, developed by Steve Yockey, Jeremy Carver, and Greg Berlanti.

Based on the DC Comics characters created by Gaiman in 1991 for his Sandman comics, the series will reportedly follow the titular Dead Boy Detectives, Charles Rowland and Edwin Paine, the ghosts of two young boys who, choose to stay on Earth to investigate supernatural crimes instead of proceeding to afterlife. Originally, the characters were drawn by Matt Wagner and Malcolm Jones III, and received their own miniseries in 2001, written by Ed Brubaker and drawn by Bryan Talbot.

No director is currently attached for the pilot, though Yockey is set to write the script for the episode which is expected to begin shooting in November.
