by Thomas Tuna

The Big Easy looks ripe for the picking.

The AMC adaptation of Anne Rice’s horror classic Interview with the Vampire is set in New Orleans in the early 20th Century, and several photos of the sets were dropped this week. Check out the Twitter post on this page.

The seven-episode first season of the series–set to hit AMC and AMC+ Oct. 2–is led by creator and showrunner Colin Jones and director Alan Taylor. The series follows Lestat (Sam Reid), Louis (Jacob Anderson) and Claudia (Bailey Bass) in an “epic story of love, blood and the perils of immortality, as told to journalist Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian),” according to the synopsis.

Knowing the limitations of a Black man in 1900s New Orleans, Louis “finds it impossible to resist Lestat’s offer of the ultimate escape: joining him as his vampire companion. But Louis’ new powers come with a price, and the introduction of Lestat’s newest fledgling–the child vampire Claudia–soon sets them on a long path of revenge and atonement.”

The cast also includes Assad Zaman as Rashid and Kalyne Coleman as Grace, Louis’ sister.

Executive producer Mark Johnson said the cast and crew took this project very seriously. “It is imperative we do not disappoint (Rice’s) fans,” he said. “We started this book-to-television show transition with a great deal of responsibility. Developing this series carries great pressure.”
