Bryan Fuller Lestat-us Update: He's Working On Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles Show

But for now, please help us welcome this brilliant and wildly talented force to Team Vampire Chronicles. Fuller is fresh of his departure as the co-showrunner of American Gods. Christopher Rice, who is also writing the series, made the announcement regarding Fuller via the show's Facebook page in a lengthy post.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount TV president Amy Powell was asked about the network's much-anticipated Vampire Chronicles series, which she is calling "the Vampire Chronicles initiative". He also is the narrator of many of her novels, including The Vampire Lestat. Bryan and I will be together tonight, along with our friend and fellow writer, Eric Shaw Quinn, at the Hollywood premiere of THE ALIENIST, another eagerly anticipated adaptation of a popular novel, and a show that we're sure will demonstrate to all why Paramount and Anonymous are the flawless home for Lestat and all of his fledglings, fellow vampires and rivals. The series sprawls over several years and characters, but it mainly follows Lestat de Lioncourt, a French nobleman who was turned into a vampire in the 18th century.

Fuller has not commented on his involvement yet, but a few fans took a tweet of his from past year as an opportunity to hope there was something in the works. Stuart Townsend then played him in the 2002 adaptation of The Queen of the Damned.

Anne Rice fans, rejoice (and Hannibal fans, too, for that matter): Bryan Fuller, who knows a thing or two about cranking up the atmosphere to wickedly tense effect, is on board for the pilot episode of the new Vampire Chronicles TV series that Anne Rice and her son, Christopher, are developing with Paramount.

As one of the most popular vampire series, there's a constant clamor for more adaptations of the books.
