Ann Rice’s “Interview with the Vampire” is being perfected for new audiences to enjoy, this time on TV.

The best-selling novel, which was adapted for the film starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise will be the basis for a new AMC and AMC + series set to release in 2022.

AMC Networks said on Thursday.

The announcement follow the company’s 2020 acquisition of 18 works by Rice.

Including the breakout hit “Interview with the Vampire,” its sequels and Mayfair Witches series.

Talented producer of “Breaking Bad” will be in charge of developing the books as a “streaming and television franchise and universe,” according to AMC release.

The film also featured Kirsten Dunst and Christian Slater.

Rice has had groundbreaking success as a writer and going in this direction will only win new fans of her work.

The first series, headed by executive producer Rolin Jones of “Perry Mason” has been green lit for eight episodes.

Rice and her son Christopher, are serving as executive producers.
