Vampire drams are a hot commodity these days. It seems each streaming service is trying to add a vampire-based show to its growing lineup of original content. For example, Julie Plec, who previously delivered to audiences series like The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Legacies, has two supernatural shows lined up at Peacock. Author Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series of novels are being adapted into a series by Peacock, along with an adaption of the AfterShock zombie comic book series Dead Day.
The synopsis of First Kill reads: “When it’s time for teenage vampire Juliette (Sarah Catherine 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 named Calliope (Imani 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.”
