Bryan Fuller is working on the Vampire Chronicles TV series

'The Vampire Chronicles' Air Date, Plot News: 'American Gods' EP Bryan Fuller Developing Anne Rice Series

"We bought 11 novels as part of the Vampire Chronicles initiative", Paramount president Amy Powell shared with The Hollywood Reporter.

Anne Rice's son and collaborator on the project, Christopher Rice, revealed the news with an incredible anecdote on Facebook, sharing that when he was just a teenager, Fuller had looked Rice up in the phone book and told her he had a dream of adapting her books for the screen one day.

Notable blood-thirster Bryan Fuller is working on the pilot for Paramount's new series based on Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles books, and there are hopes he'll stay on the show for good. Fuller has recently traded in his reputation for running shows that get canceled to straight up running from shows altogether, having abandoned both Star Trek: Discovery and American Gods.

The series will be written by the author's son Christopher Rice, himself a writer of four New York Times Bestsellers and a victor of the Lambda Literary Award. The adaptation resulted in critical and financial success, with co-star Kirsten Dunst earning herself a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the Golden Globe Awards at only 12 years old. The most recent book in the series, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, was released in 2016. Fuller is also working on a reboot of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories, but after leaving American Gods past year, he could take on the Vampire Chronicles full time. The most recent book, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, came out past year.

Added Christopher Rice: "The first great day for me on this project was when my mother asked me to partner with her on it".

There are now twelve books in the series. "For decades now, fans of The Vampire Chronicles have been clamoring for a long-form television adaptation of this galaxy of content".

Stay tuned for details about The Vampire Chronicles.
