Speaking to The Hollwood Reporter, Paramount TV president Amy Powell said they are hoping Fuller will stay on beyond the pilot, potentially as showrunner. "The rich and vast world she has created with The Vampire Chronicles is unmatched and sophisticated with '90s gothic undertones that will be perfectly suited to captivate audiences", Powell shared with Deadline past year.

In November of 2016, fans of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles series of books were elated to discover that rights to the characters had reverted back to the author who immediately expressed her enthusiasm at turning the series into a TV show.

Fuller is now working on the CBS All Access series Star Trek: Discovery, but is probably most known for his work Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, and more recently Hannibal (which I nearly wasn't even going to mention, because I am still grieving that particular loss).

Bryan Fuller is working on a Lestat TV series with Anne Rice; basically the ultimate dream-team for fans of bloody gothic romance.

Bryan Fuller isn't wasting any bloody time.

Anne Rice's son and collaborator on the project, Christopher Rice, revealed the news with an incredible anecdote on Facebook, sharing that when he was just a teenager, Fuller had looked Rice up in the phone book and told her he had a dream of adapting her books for the screen one day.

Today I'm thrilled to inform you that the young man of which I speak is Bryan Fuller, who grew up to be one of television's most innovative creative forces, responsible for such an fantastic array of shows as HANNIBAL, DEAD LIKE ME and PUSHING DAISIES. Let us know in the comment below. The co-creator of Discovery, he left the television revival before it debuted past year.

The most popular adaptation of Rice's work is the 1994 film Interview with the Vampire, starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, based on the 1976 book of the same name. Stuart Townsend then played him in the 2002 adaptation of The Queen of the Damned.
