'American Gods' EP Bryan Fuller Developing Anne Rice Series

Some good news for Bryan Fuller fans, Anne Rice fans, and the healthy crossover between those fandoms that is undoubtedly about to get a bit bigger: Fuller has come onboard the creative team behind The Vampire Chronicles, a TV series adaptation of Rice's most popular and celebrated works.

"We bought 11 novels as part of the Vampire Chronicles initiative", Powell told THR.

The out writer and super-producer, who exited as showrunner of Starz's American Gods in November, has officially joined the team adapting Anne Rice's best-selling vampire novels into a TV series. For a year now, my mother and I have had the joy of working with creative partners at Paramount Television and Anonymous Content who share our vision for a prestigious, long-form, high quality and high production value television series focusing on the journey of the immortal Lestat as he travels the lengths of the vampire world detailed in The Vampire Chronicles. Christopher Rice, who is also writing the series, made the announcement regarding Fuller via the show's Facebook page in a lengthy post.

Dear Bryan Fuller, Don't leave it. It was based on the first book of the series, published in 1976.

Plus, the White House has yet to officially deny the reports in a statement - and Hillary Clinton has plenty to say about it. President Donald Trump's dismissal of Haiti and certain African countries with a vulgar expression has created a furor.

Anne Rice's son and collaborator on the project, Christopher Rice, revealed the news with an wonderful 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.

Today I'm thrilled to inform you that the young man of which I speak is Bryan Fuller, who grew up to be one of television's most innovative creative forces, responsible for such an fantastic array of shows as HANNIBAL, DEAD LIKE ME and PUSHING DAISIES. "And those producers knew that Bryan would be a ideal addition to our creative team".

There is no release date or casting information for the TV adaptation of the series. The 2002 movie Queen Of The Damned combined plot elements from the second and third books, The Vampire Lestat and The Queen Of The Damned.
