In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount TV president Amy Powell was asked about the network's much-anticipated Vampire Chronicles series, which she is calling "the Vampire Chronicles initiative".
Fuller is now working on CBS All Access show "Star Trek: Discovery".
Anne Rice fans, rejoice (and Hannibal fans, too, for that matter): Bryan Fuller, who knows a thing or two about cranking up the atmosphere to wickedly tense effect, is on board for the pilot episode of the new Vampire Chronicles TV series that Anne Rice and her son, Christopher, are developing with Paramount.
There is no release date or casting information for the TV adaptation of the series.
Bryan Fuller is working on a Lestat TV series with Anne Rice; basically the ultimate dream-team for fans of bloody gothic romance. "We are hoping he chooses to stay on and potentially showrun".
Most people are familiar with the film Interview with the Vampire, but you may be surprised to hear that the book it's based off of is actually one of 12 novels set in the world of Lestat and Louis.
It's our great pleasure to officially announce that Bryan has become a member of the creative family working to bring the story of the vampire Lestat to television. We're confident this material will garner more exciting announcements in the months ahead. The first novel was famously adapted in 1994 as a hit film starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. Paramount TV optioned all 11 books a year ago, with Rice serving as an executive producer and her son, Christopher Rice, serving as the show's main writer and showrunner.
We'll keep you posted for future updates about the Vampire Chronicles TV show here on Epicstream.
Despite setbacks like this, Fuller is a magnificent creative force, responsible for some of the most unique shows in recent memory. He is also known for Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls and Hannibal. Hopefully he'll stick around and lend his distinct voice to The Vampire Chronicles as well.
