Report: True Blood to Become Musical

Goodbye, Bon Temps. Hello, Broadway?

HBO’s now-cancelled vampire drama True Blood is in the very early stages of becoming a musical, the New York Post reports.

The project — with music by Nathan Barr, who composed the music for the TV series, and book and lyrics by Living Dead Girl author Elizabeth Scott — apparently recently held a hush-hush table read. As such, details are scarce, but per the Post: The musical is set in the same little Louisiana town as the long-running supernatural drama and the script could use a heavy edit; still, the music and the book is “fun.” Also, series creator Alan Ball reportedly has some degree of involvement.

If True Blood makes it to the Great White Way, it’ll likely have an uphill climb. As the Post points out, other fangtastic Broadway shows, including Dance of the Vampires and Lestat, haven’t done very well at the box office
