New TV series featuring vampires... Death Valley

Vampire Cafe spotted a new promo for Vampire Diaries below. (in french)



VC also has an article here called "Good Girls and Vampires"

News of a new TV series from MTV that is going to be featuring vampires... "Death Valley", spotted by BloodyDisgusting.

After "Teen Wolf", MTV is adding to its horror slate ordering a horror comedy series about cops fighting monsters. The documentary-style "Death Valley" has an ensemble cast that includes Caity Lotz ("Mad Men") and Tania Raymonde ("Lost") and follows the Undead Task Force, which battles zombies, vampires and werewolves that have overrun the San Fernando Valley. "'Death Valley' is the perfect combination of horror and comedy, two genres we know our audience responds to," senior vp production Tony DiBari said. "That blend, combined with a fast pace and gritty 'follow doc' visual style, will take viewers on a wild ride where they are never sure what's around the next corner." Though MTV's audience skews female, executives said research has shown that horror is a good fit for the network, having already dipped a toe into the genre with its movie "My Super Psycho Sweet 16" and its forthcoming sequel.

There is news of a new book "Vampyre Labyrinth" by GP Taylor here, with a book signing in Whitby, September 18th.

Dear Undead Friends,

I’m proud to announce that “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead” will be available on DVD and Blue-Ray, November 2.

You can pre-order it at Amazon.

The DVD includes never-before-seen outtakes and deleted scenes as well as Interviews with the director (me) and the cast. It also has the Director’s Commentary (which I recorded alone in my room on a very hot day in July, with no air-conditioning, slowly going insane as I talk about the film.) And 5.1 surround sound option.

We appreciate your help and support. Please add the film to your Netflix cue.
