No Longer Six Feet Under:
Vampires Come to HBO

Ball Raises Southern Vamprie

from SciFiWire

Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball is developing a new HBO series based on Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire book series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The project is the first under Ball's two-year deal with HBO to develop new original programming, the trade paper reported. HBO has ordered an hourlong pilot to be written and directed by Ball.

The Southern Vampire series chronicles the intermingling world of humans and monsters in contemporary rural Louisiana, particularly vampires, thanks to a synthetic blood formula that allows them to roam far from their coffins, the trade paper reported.

There is no timetable for shooting the Southern pilot, but Ball believes it will happen sometime next year.
