Based on the book series by Anne Rice, the show chronicles the lives of the vampire Lestat (Sam Reid), his lover and protégé Louis (Jacob Anderson), and child vampire Claudia (Bailey Bass). The framework is the retelling of their life story by Louis to the reporter Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian), who chronicles the decades-long tale of love, blood, betrayal, revenge, immortality, and atonement. The novel was previously turned into the hit 1994 film, as well as the sequel 2002 film, Queen of the Damned, based on the third volume in The Vampire Chronicles book series, and has been adapted into comics as well.
This new, sensual reimagining of the gothic book moves up the action to start in 1910s, and adds complexity in the casting of a black actor as Louis, setting his desire to escape into a powerful and immortal life as a result of the social limitation put upon people of color in the early 20th century. The series comes from Mark Johnson, the executive producer of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, and creator/showrunner Rolin B. Jones (Weeds, Boardwalk Empire).
