New York: A Broadway musical based on popular HBO series True Blood is reportedly in early stages of development.
Director Pam MacKinnon and series creator Alan Ball are involved in the stage adaptation, reported Aceshowbiz. The project is still in early stages but several actors have lined up for it. They include Ellen Foley (from Night Court), Claybourne Elder (from Broadway's Bonnie & Clyde) and Ann Harada (from Avenue Q).
Living Dead Girl author Elizabeth Scott is reportedly writing the script, while Nathan Barr who scored the TV series is responsible for the music.
Sources say that the musical needs cutting, since the first act alone is almost 132 pages. Like the TV series, the musical "is set in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, where vampires live among humans. The town also boasts witches, fairies, shape-shifters and werewolves. If a full production ever materializes, there will be plenty of special effects."
