Bryan Fuller is currently sinking his teeth into the pilot for the television adaption of Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Powel, Paramount’s TV president, revealed that fuller is now working with Anne Rice and her son Christopher on the show’s pilot. It has not been revealed at this time is Fuller will be the showrunner for the vampire series.
We bought 11 novels as part of the Vampire Chronicles initiative,” Powel stated. “Bryan Fuller is working with Anne Rice and [her son] Chris, who are writing the pilot. We hope that he chooses to stay on and potentially showrun.”
Rice has hopes to make an ongoing series with a similar feel as ‘Game of Thrones’. The series will begin with the novel ‘The Vampire Lestat’.
Fuller recently exited his position as showrunner along with Brian Green for ‘American Gods’. Creative differences with producers have been rumored to be the cause. Fuller has also been connected to series like ‘Hannibal’, ‘Heroes’, ‘Pushing Daisies’, and ‘Dead Like Me’.
