Bryan Fuller joins the TV adaptation of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles
Bryan Fuller may have recently left American Gods over creative differences (something which has subsequently led to Gillian Anderson's departure from the show) but it appears he has already found a new role, working with legendary author Anne Rice on a TV adaptation of her series of novels the Vampire Chronicles.
The TV series will be written by Rice's son and fellow award-winning author Christopher Rice. Both will executive produce with David Kanter, Steve Golin and now Bryan Fuller.
Over at The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount TV President Amy Powell made the following statement about Fuller's involvement.
"We bought 11 novels as part of the Vampire Chronicles initiative. Bryan Fuller is working with Anne Rice and [her son] Chris, who are writing the pilot. We are hoping he chooses to stay on and potentially showrun."
This certainly looks promising and with Fuller's expertise in televisual horror with Hannibal (a series that is looking more likely to be resurrected for further stories), a TV adaptation of Vampire Chronicles with him leading, can only be a good thing...
