Anne Rice’s ‘The Vampire Chronicles’ Series In Development At Hulu

After finding success turning one literary classic into a TV show, Hulu has decided to move forward on another. It was announced today that Anne Rice’s “The Vampire Chronicles” is in the development stage of production.

Anne Rice first published “Interview With The Vampire” in 1978. While the novel didn’t become an instant success, Rice continued publishing novels set in that universe and very slowly her works started gaining steam. A 1994 movie by the same name starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise helped push her series to a much bigger audience as well. The series revolves around antihero Lestat de Lioncourt, a French nobleman who became a vampire in the 18th century. So far 12 novels have been published, with a 13th due later this year. There have also been spin-off series and comic books, as well as the aforementioned movie and a 2002 sequel starring a new cast. 

“The Vampire Chronicles” series will be produced by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content, who acquired the rights to the books in 2017. Rice and her son, Christopher Rice, will be the executive producers. Christopher wrote the original script for the project as well. There currently is no showrunner attached to the project, or any stars, but all of that is expected to change soon.
