AMC Networks has greenlit Anne Rice’s “Interview with the Vampire,” a new series for AMC+ and AMC based on the bestselling novel that will premiere on both platforms in 2022. Last year, the company acquired the rights to Rice’s works, encompassing 18 titles including “The Vampire Chronicles” and “Mayfair Witches” series, which have delighted fans around the world. “Interview” is the first title in the collection to be developed and greenlit to series.
Film and television producer Mark Johnson (“Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul,” “Halt and Catch Fire,” “Rectify”), who also has an overall agreement with AMC Studios, is taking the lead on developing the full Anne Rice collection purchased by AMC into a streaming and television franchise and universe.
Rolin Jones (“Perry Mason,” “Friday Night Lights”), who also has an overall development deal with AMC Studios, is creator, showrunner and executive producer of “Interview.” The series has been greenlit for an eight-episode first season. Johnson is also an executive producer. Anne and Christopher Rice are non-writing executive producers.
