  1. Oh wow. I read these books a last year and loved them. Really interesting take on Urban Fantasy. I had no idea it was going to be adapted for TV. This trailer looked… fine. I would not have picked Starz, but I am not a producer so what do I know. The books get pretty wild, it will be interesting to see if they can pull it off.

    I hope this is good, and that people will go back and read the novel and then he writes more.

  2. Totally read this as The Room and was wondering why no one was talking about Tommy Wiseau coming to television.

  3. This might have been worth watching if Crave didn’t get greedy and start trying to charge me another $10 (lol no) for access to Starz content (which was free with the normal membership up until a couple of months ago). Fuck them. Cunts.

  4. Looks neat. I like the spy drama angle. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a “supernatural spy drama”. That’s a curious cocktail.

  5. really good book series, I am psyched, but also really nervous, as, for some reason that I can’t comprehend, the Author of Twilight is attached to the project…. WHY?!

    ​

    I have no idea why, I just hope she doesn’t f’n ruin it

  6. It sounds very similar to The Laundry books an ongoing series (9 books so far) by Charles Stross. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Laundry_Files](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Laundry_Files)

    I’ve only read the first three but if you remember the Harry Palmer spy movies from the sixties, add a dash of The I.T. Crowd and throw it all into a modern day Lovecraftian setting, you’ve got the idea.

    Another take on the subject was Channel 4’s 1997 miniseries Ultraviolet. A Vatican run spy agency wages a secret war against modern day vampires, Code-5’s . It’s a great show, written by Joe Ahearne with a stand out performance from a young Idris Elba. I still rate his acting in the last act of Ep-5 as some of the finest I’ve seen on TV.

  7. More pop songs remixed in extremely s**tty ways. I hope the screenplay is not as clichéed, although amnesia is really trite.
