Following the company’s acquisition of the rights to Anne Rice’s book series The Vampire Chronicles and The Lives of the Mayfair Witches, Johnson will reportedly lead AMC’s plans to develop Rice’s collection for television and streaming. AMC’s acquisition deal of the best-selling author’s works encompasses 18 titles between each book series. Interview with the Vampire is just the first title in the collection to be developed and greenlit to series.
