The gothic and sexy world of Anne Rice is coming back, this time with a new series on AMC.
Last year, AMC acquired the rights to several Anne Rice stories, including The Vampire Chronicles and The Lives of the Mayfair Witches, and it seems like her most iconic work is first up for the network as news has broken that an Interview With the Vampire series is now green-lit. The series reportedly has an eight-episode order and will look to debut in 2022 on AMC and AMC Plus. Rolin Jones will serve as writer, executive producer, and showrunner.
“This is a day we have been looking forward to since we acquired this legendary Anne Rice collection a little more than a year ago,” said Dan McDermott, president of original programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios. “This story already has millions of fans in the U.S. and around the world, we can’t wait to share this new interpretation of the classic brought to life by Rolin and Mark, as we continue to work on developing the entire collection.”
“With The Walking Dead, this Anne Rice collection, and our majority stake in Agatha Christie Limited through our own Acorn TV, we are proud to have the stewardship of three unique, fan-forward, and beloved franchises and universes, which we are only just beginning to explore,” he continued. “We are also thrilled to have Mark, a world-class producer we have previously worked with on iconic series like Breaking Bad, Rectify, Halt and Catch Fire and Better Call Saul on board at the helm of our efforts to develop an entire Anne Rice universe, with significant aspirations for these beloved stories and characters.”
