We learned last year that Paramount Television and Anonymous Content had optioned the rights to 11 books from Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles series, of course led by the iconic character Lestat de Lioncourt. Rice herself has been tapped to executive produce, with son Christopher Rice serving as writer and exec producer. At long last, the series has found a home!
As reported by Deadline today, Hulu is developing “The Vampire Chronicles.”
Last we heard, Season 1 will cover The Vampire Lestat, the second book in Rice’s series.
Set in 18th century France, the story is told from the point of view of Lestat de Lioncourt, a young man desperate to break free from his life and become an actor in Paris. Of course, he ends up being turned into a vampire by Magnus.
“I want to begin right there and follow the adventures of Lestat through the Chronicles,” Rice noted last year.
What can we expect from “The Vampire Chronicles” TV series? Anne Rice took part in a live Q&A session over on Facebook last year, revealing some interesting things about it.
