TNT has ordered a pilot for “Let The Right One In,” based on the best-selling novel by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist. The potential series is described as an eerie drama about a young boy, long tormented by his classmates, who finds solace in a friendship with a charismatic female vampire who appears to be near his age. The vampire settles into the boy’s small Vermont town with her mysterious caretaker, just as a series of bizarre murders begins attracting the attention of law enforcement.
Jeff Davis (“Criminal Minds” “Teen Wolf”) wrote the script for the pilot and serves as executive producer with Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break,” “Teen Wolf” ) and Becky Clements (“Aquarius,” “Last Man Standing”) of Tomorrow Studios and Simon Oakes (“Women in Black,” “Let Me In”) of Hammer Films. Carl Molinder, who produced the original screenplay, and Alex Brunner (“Dark Places”) also serve as executive producers. The pilot is being produced by Tomorrow Studios in association with Turner’s Studio T, the in-house studio that owns and produces original series for TNT and TBS.
