Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles TV Series Adaptation Heads To Hulu
Since the late 1970s, Anne Rice’s ongoing series The Vampire Chronicles amassed a loyal following of dreamers and romantics of the vampire genre, indefinitely setting the pace for other authors to follow. After battling for the theatrical rights to her series, the creative teamed up with Paramount TV and Anonymous Content to bring the show to the livestreaming service, Hulu. After years of production and legal politics, Rice is prepared to hypnotize audiences once more.
The ongoing tale of The Vampire Chronicles, which will see a new release in 2018 titled Blood Communion: A Tale of Prince Lestat, was previously headed by former showrunner for American Gods and Hannibal Bryan Fuller. Since his departure six months ago, the search for a new showrunner continues. Rice and her son Christopher Rice remain at the forefront of the live-action adaptation as executive producers and writer alongside David Kanter and Steve Golin.
According to THR, Hulu won out on The Vampire Chronicles despite multiple other interested parties, which isn’t at all surprising given the success of The Handmaid’s Chronicles and other original productions. With over 100 million copies sold of Anne Rice’s series worldwide and a loyal fanbase to boot, it’s no wonder so many stakeholders wish to partake. Concerning the topic as to how Hulu and company plan to adapt the 11 plus books into a show still stands to be seen. There’s no doubt they intend to do the series justice given the creator herself will oversee its development.
For the time bring, the show does not have a premiere date set. Stay tuned! What do you think of Hulu acquiring Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles TV adaptation?
