Blood Disgusting reports that Emma Roberts (Scream 4, The Blackcoat’s Daughter, “American Horror Story,” “Scream Queens”) will continue hanging out in the horror genre with the upcoming young adult Netflix series “First Kill,“ centered on blood-sucking vampires. Roberts will exec produce the series.
This news also comes from Variety who also first reported the news that Netflix has given a series order to “First Kill,” a one-hour television series that’s based on the same-titled short story from writer Victoria “V.E.” Schwab. “When it’s time for teenage vampire Juliette to make her first kill so she can take her place among a powerful vampire family, she sets her sights on a new girl in town named Calliope. But much to Juliette’s surprise, Calliope is a vampire hunter, from a family of celebrated slayers. Both find that the other won’t be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.”
Schwab created the series and will co-write and executive produce. Felicia D. Henderson has been set as show-runner, and eight episodes have been ordered up for the first season.
