Great news for "Six Feet Under", vampire and Anna Paquin fans alike — "SFU" creator Alan Ball is coming back to HBO and bringing a little bit of all those things with him. Ball is signed on to create a new series, "True Blood" about modern day vampires who live among humans in Louisiana and survive on a Japanese-manufactured synthetic blood. The show will be a mix of horror and humor, which is exactly the kind of awesome combination that only flies on pay cable. The pilot has already been shot and stars as mentioned Anna Paquin alongside smaller names like The Starter Wife's Stephen Moyer.
I absolutely adored "Six Feet Under" and can't wait to see Ball's trademark dark humor back on HBO. I also love seeing recently Emmy-nominated and Oscar-winning Anna just about anywhere. I had just about given myself over to Showtime exclusively in terms of my favorite cable dramas, but "True Blood" may draw me back to HBO.
