Vampire Chronicles Series Being Developed By Anne Rice And Bryan Fuller

'Hannibal' Creator Developing 'Vampire Chronicles' TV Series

Known for his TV adaptations of Hannibal and American Gods, Fuller is also a lifelong Anne Rice fan. "The rich and vast world she has created with The Vampire Chronicles is unmatched and sophisticated with '90s gothic undertones that will be perfectly suited to captivate audiences", Powell shared with Deadline a year ago.

Rice's son Christopher broke the news Tuesday, sharing a story of a young man who had tracked Anne Rice down in the phonebook in the 80's and told her he wanted to adapt Interview With The Vampire for the big screen, only to be turned down by Hollywood's biggest producers.

Amy Powell, the president of Paramount TV, hopes Fuller will decide to stay on and oversee the new vampire show on television. For a year now, my mother and I have had the joy of working with creative partners at Paramount Television and Anonymous Content who share our vision for a prestigious, long-form, high quality and high production value television series focusing on the journey of the immortal Lestat as he travels the lengths of the vampire world detailed in The Vampire Chronicles.

Katie Couric Just Broke Her Silence on Matt Lauer's Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Couric is gearing up for the debut in a few months' time of a six-part issues-driven documentary series for National Geogrphic. In November, Matt Lauer was sacked from the Today Show on NBC after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.

For those who've only dipped their fangs into Rice's supernatural writings, Lestat is the vampire played by Tom Cruise in the 1994 film adaptation of Interview With the Vampire (in which Fuller was not involved).

Bryan Fuller isn't wasting any bloody time.

No word yet on a network, casting or timeframe, but we'd be shocked if a network doesn't pick this up especially with the fan base behind Anne Rice and Bryan Fuller has proven to be great at taking books to tv especially if Season 1 of American God's was any indication. Let us know in the comment below.

The UN and U.S. have accused Myanmar's army of ethnic cleansing, with the UN rights chief saying it may even be guilty of genocide.

For months now, we've been developing written material that focuses Lestat's story for television while also delivering on the promises Mom made to her fans previous year when she first announced her intentions for the show.

As one of the most popular vampire series, there's a constant clamor for more adaptations of the books.
