Showtime has greenlit a pilot order for drama “Let The Right One In”, starring Oscar nominee Demián Bichir (“A Better Life”) as Mark, a husband and father who had the perfect life until it was turned upside down by a mysterious creature who bit his daughter (Eleanor) and then vanished into the night. The logline: Inspired by the original Swedish novel and film, the series centers on a father and his 12-year-old daughter whose lives were changed forever 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire. Locked in at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the minimal amount of human blood she needs to stay alive.”

Andrew Hinderaker (“Away”, “Penny Dreadful”) will serve as showrunner and executive produce along with Seith Mann (“Homeland”, “Blindspotting”), who will also direct the pilot.

“Let The Right One In” is produced by Tomorrow Studios (“Cowboy Bebop”, “Snowpiercer”) with Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements also serving as executive producers. Bichir will serve as producer.
