Netflix Orders First Season

Gaiman, Heinberg, and David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight), who will exec-produce with Gaiman, will co-write the first episode.
Keeping DC’s parent in the picture, the series will be produced by Warner Bros. Television.
The first season is set for "10 (plus one)" episodes, according to the announcement. Gaiman said on Twitter that the story will be "Preludes and Nocturnes and a little more."
Sandman was in development as a movie for years. When the last effort fell apart in 2016, Eric Heisserer, the screenwriter who’d been assigned to write the feature, said he’d come to the conclusion that the story should be on television, where it has now landed (see "’Sandman’ Loses Another Screenwriter").
Vertigo, the DC imprint for which Sandman was the flagship, was shut down by DC last month (see "DC to Abandon Vertigo Brand"), although exact reprints of Vertigo graphic novels will continue to carry the brand for now (see "Vertigo Archive to Continue to Carry Brand").
