Interview With the Vampire

In conversation with the Los Angeles Times,  showrunner Rolin Jones stated he hopes to make the third season of Interview With the Vampire “a little pop masterpiece” to rival Hedwig and the Angry Inch and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

“Lestat becomes a rock star. Let’s star there. We’re going to do a lot with that and are excited about potentially working with Daniel Hart who’s done the music for the first two seasons. We’re going to try to beat Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Rocky Horror. We’re about to try to make a little pop masterpiece.

The deeper I get into [Anne Rice’s] books, I’m slowly catching up to the love that the people who really love the show have for these books and clutch them to their hearts. So many of the artists who worked on our show talked about how the tone of the book allowed them to think about coming out. These books are important to people. I feel very privileged and very lucky to be this person who’s shepherding that to a new generation at this point.”
