Bryan Fuller joins creative team for Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles TV series, alongside Rice and her son Christopher Rice

Bryan Fuller has joined the creative team for Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles TV series, after parting ways with the "American Gods" TV series.

The news was announced by Rice’s son, Christopher Rice, in a Facebook post: "It’s our great pleasure to officially announce that Bryan has become a member of the creative family working to bring the story of the vampire Lestat to television".

Paramount TV president Amy Powell also talked about the news which is being called “the Vampire Chronicles initiative” during an interview: "Bryan Fuller is working with Anne Rice and Chris, who are writing the pilot. We are hoping he chooses to stay on and potentially showrun". Paramount TV optioned all 11 books last year, with Rice serving as an executive producer and her son, Christopher Rice, serving as the show’s main writer and showrunner.
