Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.
Check out the official statement (below)!

We dreamed a dream of vampires and werewolves fighting over a girl! With more nudity than Twilight!
OK, so it probably won't be Les Misérables, but is there any WAY you're not going to see a True Blood musical??
Composer Nathan Barr, who wrote the score for all seven seasons of the HBO hit, is working on an honest-to-goodness big Broadway version! He says:
"This was something that I pitched to HBO and Alan Ball… There's no guarantees, but I think the direction we're heading in is really exciting."
Incredible! But who can play the characters we've come to love- with singing?? We've got a few ideas…
Stephen Moyer as Bill
Stephen is no stranger to musicals himself as last year's The Sound Of Music proved. Besides, if it ain't broke…
Laura Bell Bundy as Sookie
This Tony-nominated Southern Belle can sing AND wouldn't have to fake an accent!
Hugh Jackman as Alcide
Few men can measure up to Joe Manganiello. Hugh has the body AND the voice to pull it off! We just hope he pulls it all the way off! LOLz!
Tom Hiddleston as Eric
Erica Piccininni as Jessica
Erica was so perfect in Jersey Boys on Broadway, Clint Eastwood couldn't think of casting anyone else for the movie! And she just happens be the spitting image of Deborah Ann Woll!
Billy Magnussen as Jason
Hot body? Check. Great singing voice? Check. Looks like the kind of adorable that will get him into trouble? Check! Sounds like a decent proxy for Ryan Kwanten to us!
