New Charlaine Harris Supernatural Series To Hit TV
You may know Charlaine Harris from her True Blood series, but she is far from a one-trick pony. She has several other series under her belt as well. One is the Harper Connelly Mysteries, which is now joining Syfy’s television lineup.
Entertainment Weekly reports, “True Blood author Charlaine Harris might end up with another hit supernatural drama series on the air. Syfy has picked up the rights to her Harper Connelly Mysteries for a new series project in development titled Grave Sight.”
“Harris’ four-book series, launched in 2005, follows a young woman who was struck by lightning as a teenager. Now in her 20s, she senses the location and last memories of dead people. In the Syfy adaptation, Connelly teams up with her protective stepbrother, Tolliver Lang, to help find a missing teenage girl, only to uncover a network of lies and murders throughout a small town in the Ozarks.
“Kam Miller (Law and Order: SVU) is writing the pilot, which is being developed as a prospective drama series with Universal Cable Productions. Previously, CBS was developing a TV show based on the novels. Word that Syfy might have picked up the books first leaked onto some True Blood and Harris fan forums earlier this month.”
Avid fans of True Blood and the Sookie Stackhouse series will be delighted to hear this news, and we are too!
