Well, there might be a new vampire show coming to TV, it all depends on whether or not the show gets the funding. According to MedfieldPatch, Jon F. Merz, author of the Lawson Vampire novels, is looking for investors for his television series, The Fixer, a show based on his vampire books.
“We started talking to billionaires, then we started talking to millionaires, then we started talking to thousandaires where there was a lot of interest,” said Merz, who also runs a production company on top of being an author.
At the moment, the pilot for the show is four to six weeks away from production and is being shopped around to various television channels, said Merz, adding that a few channels have expressed interest in the series. So, there is a possibility that us vampire fans will have another show to look forward to every week, we’ll just have to wait and see.
According to The Fixer’s Facebook page:
“Called “James Bond with fangs,” THE FIXER tells the story of Lawson, a cynical, jaded part cop/spy/commando divinely chosen from birth to help protect the Balance – the line separating humanity and the race of living vampires that has evolved in secret alongside humans over thousands of years. Called upon to protect his race by rooting out rogues, criminals, terrorists, and ne’er-do-wells, Lawson dispenses justice with extreme prejudice, sarcasm by the bowlful, and bullets by the pound. Lawson’s area of operations (AO) is Boston and New England, but his previous missions have taken him all over the world.
What makes THE FIXER so unique and utterly cool? Unlike every other vampire story, the vampires in Lawson’s world are *not* undead. They’re members of a separately evolving race that has existed in secret for thousands of years. They have their own society carefully intermingled with humans who, for the most part, have no idea they exist.
A thrilling mix of Crime, Espionage, and Magic – THE FIXER will deliver pulse-pounding episodes!”
What do you guys think? Yay or nay? Will you watch it if it makes it to TV?
