  • 'American Gods': Creators Bryan Fuller & Michael Green Exit Series

Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, the team behind the Starz adaptation of the 2001 Neil Gaiman novel, have opted to leave the series.

Green and Fuller both have multiple irons in the fire elsewhere. Still, there are a lot of great showrunners out there, and given the pedigree behind this project, if they can get it right, it'd be quite the feather in any showrunner's cap. Producer of the series, FremantleMedia, recently had a changing of the guard to a new scripted chief named Dante di Loreto.

There has been no official word on the reason behind their exits, but word is it was due to budget reasons.

The two showrunners are leaving the series over budget and creative disagreements with the producing company FreeMantle Media, according to Variety. While it's believed that each episode of Season 2 war nearing a price tag of $10 million, the two executive producers were pushing for more.

American Gods premiered on Starz earlier this Spring and earned a quick renewal after it became a ratings hit. He will next focus on the Amazing Stories reboot series for Apple; Green is writing a sequel to Murder on the Orient Express. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday's bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. There have been rumors that series creator Neil Gaiman could be a co-showrunner but he is now working on Amazon's Good Omens and confirmed on Twitter he won't be a part of American Gods as anything other than an executive producer. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they've lost.
