Netflix has a new vampire romance series coming, titled First Kill!
The upcoming show has found it’s lead actresses in Imani Lewis and Sarah Catherine Hook, Variety reveals.
“BLESSINGS ON BLESSING!!!🥂✨Huge thanks to my agency @innovativeartists , @ldbcasting and my incredible team!🖤Stay tuned!!!😆 #godisgood,” Imani wrote on Instagram.
According to Variety, “the one-hour show is based on the short story of the same name by Victoria “V.E.” Schwab that was published in the Imprint story collection ‘Vampire Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite’ in September 2020.”
In the series, when it’s time for teenage vampire Juliette Fairmont (Hook) to make her first kill so she can take her place among a powerful vampire family, she sets her sights on a new girl in town, Calliope Burns (Lewis). But much to Juliette’s surprise, Calliope is a vampire hunter, from a family of celebrated slayers. Both find that the other won’t be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.
Calliope, or Cal, is a fearless, headstrong monster hunter. Behind that strong veneer is a vulnerable young teen torn between her duty to her family and the secret yearnings for love.
Juliette is a shy, kind teenage girl who was born a vampire and determined to not be a monster. Her family has always supported her but as she comes into her own, her quest for love is challenged by her legacy.
Filming is set to begin later this year in Savannah, Georgia.
