Dexter and The Walking Dead producers bringing V-Wars to television

We may have found the next big vampire series to take "True Blood's" place once it departs our world this summer. (Sorry, "Vampire Diaries," no one counts you.) IDW Entertainment and Entertainment One Television announced today they'll be collaborating on bringing the comic series "V-Wars" to the small screen .

Three-time Emmy Award nominee Tim Schlattmann ("Dexter") has been tapped to write the pilot, and will serve as an executive producer on the series. Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, John Morayniss and Benedict Carver from eOne Television, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion ("The Walking Dead") will also executive produce.

Based on the IDW comic by Jonathan Maberry, V-Wars is set in...

a world transformed by a catastrophic environmental event that releases a millennial-old virus that once triggered, affects individuals differently depending on their DNA. The result is vampires as unique as their cultures and a response from those unaffected humans like never seen before.

“This is a story that takes everything the audience thinks they know about vampires and throws it out the window. They're not the undead. They’re us.” said Schlattman.

We'll keep you posted as "V-Wars" moves forward.
