This keeps sounding better and better!
The Vampire Diaries executive producer Kevin Williamson recently announced that he would be developing a 'companion' show to his smash CW series - involving a group of college-aged paranormal investigators - and he's now revealing more details about what he wants to accomplish with the series!
"It's set on a college campus. There's a little bit of some paranormal investigation involved, but it's more about the characters. It's more about what [fellow executive producer] Julie [Plec] and I like to do, which is create a world of people. A young girl goes to college, and it turns out there's a lot more going on. We've got this whole world and this whole sort of mythology about this girl and the journey that she takes. It's full of scary, horrible murder and surprises, and all the twists and turns that we love to do, but once again it is a story about epic love. That's what we're about here at The Vampire Diaries. And that's sort of why you call it a 'companion piece', is because you will see those similarities in the show. You know, a bunch of fun characters that you can visit every week and watch them go through all these scary, twisty storylines, but it all leads to some greater story about epic and tragic love. It would be a companion in the sense that they would sort of exist in the same world, but it's a different show. I don't want to mess with [The Vampire Diaries]. This show's gold. This show's very special."
It certainly sounds like it!
Like all the fun of those ridiculous paranormal research reality shows, but with actual story and creative license! And romance!
We're very excited to see this come to fruition! We'll DEFINITELY be tuned in!
What do U think?? Will U watch Kevin's new show??
