BBC snags headline-making ‘Interview With The Vampire’ from AMC

Interview With The Vampire

The BBC has picked up AMC Networks’ drama Interview With The Vampire for BBC Two and iPlayer.

The show, which is based on Anne Rice’s novel, is from Gran Via Productions, Dwight Street Book Club and AMC Studios.

The seven-parter is set in New Orleans and tracks the lives of three vampires as they embark on a decades-long path of revenge and atonement.

Sue Deeks, head of BBC programme acquisition, described the show as “a sumptuous, sensual, complex and disturbing treat.”

The show has made headlines recently, becoming part of an intriguing tactical arrangement that saw a slate of top AMC scripted series taking up a temporary home on Warner Bros Discovery’s streaming platform Max in the US.

From 1 September to 31 October, the drama – along with Fear The Walking Dead and Killing Eve – will be available on Max via what has been dubbed as a ‘pop up’ partnership.

Interview With The Vampire originally debuted on AMC last October, with a second season in the works. It is among shows to have been allowed to continue production despite the US actors strike, following a deal with SAG-AFTRA.
