Author of books that sparked 'True Blood' gets a bite from CBS
CBS is hoping to strike lightning with the creator of the hit novels that sparked "True Blood."
The network is developing a project centered on a series of Harper Connelly mystery novels written by Charlaine Harris, the author of the "Sookie Stackhouse" novels that have been the basis for the hit HBO series. The Harper Connelly novels revolve around a woman who is struck by lightning, gaining the ability to see the last moments of the dead.
Among the executive producers of the project, titled "Grave Sight," which is the title of the first Harper Connelly novel, are Tony Scott and Ridley Scott, and Naren Shankar ("CSI: Crime Scene Investigation").
