‘Vampire Chronicles’ Series in Development at Hulu

VAMPIRE chronicles feat lestat

THR reported the deal means Hulu will now develop the television drama, which is based on an original script written by author Anne Rice's son, award-winning novelist Christopher Rice. Fuller exited the project earlier this year, stating that he chose to step back rather than step on the toes of the Rice family, whom he considers his friends.

Both Anne and Christopher Rice will serve as executive producers on the series, along with Anonymous Content's David Kanter and Steve Golin. Bryan Fuller was going to be the showrunner, but made a decision to give up the position so as not to incur the ire of Rice and her son, Christopher, both of whom are his longtime friends.

Hulu will air the show, which is a joint production between Paramount Television and Anonymous Content, which optioned the rights to the first 11 books last spring.
