True Blood, the new vampire series from Alan Ball (creator of Six Feet Under), will debut its first season on September 7, 2008 at 9 PM, on HBO. The premiere season will consist of a total of 12 episodes.
In the new show, vampires no longer need human blood because of the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood. Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who works as a waitress at a bar in Louisiana and can read people’s minds, is mysteriously drawn to 173 year-old vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), after an encounter in her place.
In other news about the show, Daily Motion got a news report that details just how vampires went from being in the shadows, to accepted members of society.
