Anne Rice, Bryan Fuller Developing Vampire Chronicles TV Series


Considering he's now gone from American Gods (after the first season) and Star Trek: Discovery (before it truly began), and we haven't had an update on that Amazing Stories revival in a while, there is definitely room for Fuller to take on a new project.

Fuller is being eyed as a potential showrunner for the TV series, which is now underway with Paramount Television and Anonymous Content.

Paramount TV optioned all 11 books previous year, with Rice serving as an executive producer and her son, Christopher Rice, serving as the show's main writer and showrunner. He's developing "The Vampire Chronicles" with Anne Rice, who finally chose to bring the vampire Lestat's story to the small screen.

Bryan Fuller Lestat-us Update: He's Working On Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles Show

The most popular adaptation of Rice's work is the 1994 film Interview with the Vampire, starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, based on the 1976 book of the same name.

Hannibal and American Gods veteran Bryan Fuller is working with novelist Anne Rice and her son Christopher Rice on the planned television adaptation of The Vampire Chronicles. Fuller is also working on a reboot of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories, but after leaving American Gods a year ago, he could take on the Vampire Chronicles full time. It's high time we saw another Vampire Chronicles adaptation, and with the current trend for big-budget TV, you'll get all the gore and sexy vampire melodrama you could possibly want. The project aims to bring the vampire Lestat's globe-trotting journey to the small screen, with a focus on providing "a prestigious, long-form, high quality and high production value" series. "The series is full of compelling characters led by Lestat, arguably one of the greatest original characters, literary or otherwise". "This is a dream come true, both for me and for Christopher and for the fans who have been asking to see the Brat Prince in this medium for years". Paramount TV and Anonymous Content are the producing partners.
