Abraham Lincoln is hoping to stake some more vampires on NBC. The book based on Seth Grahame-Smith, the film that made its way into theaters didn’t exactly light the box office on fire. However, NBC is apparently interested in developing a series set within the novel titled “The Last American Vampire.”
The series is described as a supernatural thriller that follows Abby, a young analyst, as she’s recruited into a special division of the FBI that investigates unique and mysterious cases. While working on her first case tracking a string of bizarre murders she discovers her new enigmatic partner also happens to be a 500-year-old vampire.
NBC has given the project a script commitment with a penalty attached. Terry Matalas will write and executive produce. Seth Grahame-Smith, who wrote the original novel, will also executive produce alongside David Katenberg. 20th Century Fox Television will produce along with KatzSmith Productions.
