AMC Releases First Look at “Interview with the Vampire” Series

AMC recently released the trailer for their Interview with the Vampire series, when they appeared at Comic-Con. They also announced that it would air on October 2, on both AMC and AMC+.

The trailer shows that the series will take some small deviations from Anne Rice’s novel, but it looks like the series won’t stray too far from the source material. In May 2020, AMC acquired the directing rights to the series, as well as the rights to adapt another series from Anne Rice, called The life of the Mayfair witches.

In June 2021, it was announced that AMC had commissioned an 8-episode adaptation of Interview with the Vampire. After that, Sam Reid was cast as the vampire Lestat, while Jacob Anderson will play Louis de Point du Lac. Bailey Bass, Eric Bogosian and Assad Zaman also make appearances. The trailer itself shows some very nice visuals. Since our story begins in 1910, the sets and costumes are absolutely extravagant, definitely leaning in the direction of a period piece more than any kind of stylized visuals.

Also, as you would expect from such a series, there seems to be a number of steamy scenes, as well as a good bit of gore. They are vampires, after all. For those not incredibly familiar with the film or the novel, the story details the story of Louis de Point du Lac, a vampire. He tells the story to a reporter during an interview, who is a little skeptical of his story at first. Louis has a difficult life and Lestat sees him struggling. Lestat offers him a way out in vampirism.

Unfortunately, Lestat and Louis come to realize that they see the world in different ways. Lestat is violent and predatory, while Louis does his best to retain his compassion for humanity.

On the more technical side of production, we have Rolin Jones as showrunner. He also adapted the novel into a unique screenplay. Mark Johnson who worked on You better call Saul, Alan Taylor and Christopher Rice are credited as the series’ executive producers. Sadly, Anne Rice herself passed away in 2021, but she’s still credited as executive producer.
