Blood Ties

Canada's CHUM television has commissioned a 22 episode series Blood Ties, based on the Tanya Huff novels.

From the press release:

Blood Ties is based on Tanya Huff's internationally popular "Blood" novels. When her latest love interest turns out to be a 450-year-old vampire and the caseload of her fledgling P.I. agency shifts from fraud artists and cheating spouses to battles with ghosts, ghouls, zombies and demons, ex-police detective Vicki Nelson realizes that her life will never be the same. The series will be produced by Kaleidoscope Entertainment and goes into production later this summer.

Having read the series, I can say that the books are excellent and, so long as they don't kill the books, it'll be great to have a new vampire based series.

Amen to that. I've missed vampire series dearly since it's been a while (since Angel went off the air i guess). We're also getting the Blade series, and although I didn't care for the movies too much, the trailers look solid on this one.

I've not yet seen trailers for the blade series - will have to dearch them out
