NBC eyes The Last American Vampire for series adaptation

NBC has committed to a pilot script, plus penalty, based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel The Last American Vampire, per a report from Deadline. The book follows Henry Sturges, a 500-year-old vampire who’s been locked away for 40 years, believed to be the last of his kind. After a string of mysterious, grizzly murders happens, Sturges is paired with an FBI Agent to figure out if other vampires are the cause.

The character first appeared in Grahame-Smith’s previous novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. In the 2012 film adaptation, he was played by Dominic Cooper (Preacher). No casting has been announced for the series.

Grahame-Smith and his producing partner David Katzenberg will serve as executive producers, as will former 12 Monkeys showrunner Terry Matalas. 20th Century Fox TV will be the studio, where Grahame-Smith and Katzenberg have a pre-existing deal.

Katzenberg started out in reality TV before directing episodes of The Goldbergs and HBO’s Ballers. Grahame-Smith wrote The LEGO Batman Movie and the Dark Shadows film reboot, as well as adapting his own book with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The two of them also teamed up to help produce the blockbuster horror movie IT and its upcoming sequel, IT: Chapter Two, based on the Stephen King novel.
