Well, when you are finished with “Breaking Dawn” (sniff, sniff–what are we going to do when it’s over?), you’ve gotten through all the Buffy DVD’s (which, if you are a vampire fan, are a must), you can tune in this fall to HBO’s new series “True Blood” premiering September 7th and starring Anna Paquin.
Strange advertisements have been popping up everywhere in magazines for the series–without actually mentioning the series title. My favorite that I’ve seen so far is the one that says “Vampires Are Immoral” under a photograph of, what I assume is, a vampire (he’s quite good looking). The copy underneath reads “Support Human Rights. Say NO to the Vampire Rights Amendment.”
Then it directs you to this website (which is a marketing ploy for the show, of course): FellowshipoftheSun.org
You can read an interview with the show’s director, Alan Ball (of “Six Feet Under”) here. The show is apparently based on a series of vampire novels I have actually not read (and I thought I’d read them all) by author Charlaine Harris. Since the CBS series “Moonlight” got cancelled, I’m hoping that this show will fill the vampire void left in my heart post-“Breaking Dawn”…
