Netflix Orders Vampire Drama “First Kill” with Emma Roberts Tapped As Producer

Netflix has given a series order to “First Kill,” a one-hour drama based on the same-titled short story from writer Victoria “V.E.” Schwab that was published in the Imprint story collection “Vampire Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite” back in September. The logline: When it’s time for teenage vampire Juliette to make her first kill so she can take her place among a powerful vampire family, she sets her sights on a new girl in town named Calliope. But much to Juliette’s surprise, Calliope is a vampire hunter, from a family of celebrated slayers. Both find that the other won’t be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.

Schwab will co-write and executive produce. Felicia D. Henderson has been set as show-runner, and eight episodes have been ordered up for the first season of “First Kill.”
