SINK YOUR teeth into Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire for a blood-soaked saga of immortality, love and revenge starring Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones), Eric Bogosian (Succession) and Sam Reid (The Newsreader). This contemporary adaptation breathes new life into Rice’s revolutionary gothic novel and marks the thrilling first instalment of AMC’s emerging Immortal Universe series based on her lauded The Vampire Chronicles.
Now, hot on the heels of its BBC Two transmission starting 12th October 2023, this seven-part series is set to make its home entertainment bow. Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire Season One comes to Blu-ray and DVD on 6th November 2023 and each episode will also be available to purchase on digital 24 hours after its transmission, courtesy of Acorn Media International.
The series showcases an ensemble of exceptional talent. Not only is it created by Boardwalk Empire’s Rolin Jones but is executively produced by a host of stars, including award-winning producer Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul), Christopher Rice, the late Anne Rice and award-winning director Alan Taylor (The Sopranos, Game of Thrones) – who also directs the first two episodes. With a second season on the horizon, now is the perfect time to delve in and witness their talent first-hand.
In modern-day Dubai, vampire Louis de Pointe du Lac (Jacob Anderson) sits down with renowned journalist Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian) to share the story of his life – or rather, his afterlife – which begins in the hustle and bustle of 20th-century New Orleans. There, challenged by the constraints as a queer Black man in 1900s America, Louis finds it impossible to ignore the irresistible allure of Lestat de Lioncourt’s (Sam Reid) offer of the ultimate escape: a chance to outmanoeuvre the confines of mortality and join him as his vampire companion.
But Louis’ new powers come at a precious price and the introduction of Lestat’s latest creation – the child vampire Claudia (Bailey Bass – Avatar: The Way Of Water) – propels them on a path of revenge and redemption spanning decades.
Filled with passion, blood, monsters and beauty and with its unique blend of racial dynamics, sexuality, horror and humour – Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire is truly to die for and will leave audiences thirsting for more.
