As we mentioned yesterday, vampires are "in."
The new Twilight book and upcoming film are expected to be big business. And, HBO will premiere a vampire drama called True Blood in September.
We can't wait!
Alan Ball, the show runner of HBO's vampire show was asked by TV critics this week for his opinion on CBS' canceled vampire show Moonlight.
"I think it's lame when you have a vampire go out during the day just because you don't want to shoot at night," answered Ball.
A critic asked HBO president of entertainment Sue Naegle about whether she was hesitant to greenlight True Blood given "what happens when networks cancel a vampire show."
"I can appreciate that passion, I hope this show gets that kind of rise out of people as long as they don't send coffins to my office," the HBO prezzie answered.
Dayum. Are people who are really into vampire shows huge wackadoodles? No!
We're not crazy.
Are we??????? Naughty grin.
