Plot Summary: Because of the invention of a new “synthetic bottled blood”, vampires no longer need to feed off of humans to survive, and can therefore attempt to coexist with them. As a result of this, two years after vampires ‘came out of the coffin’ on national television, Sookie Stackhouse, a barmaid living in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana who can read people’s minds, has her life forever changed when she meets the town’s first vampire, Bill Compton as he walks into her place of employment, Merlotte’s Bar.
Trivia: • The part of Tara Thornton was originally given to Brook Kerr. Rutina Wesley replaced her after two episodes were filmed. All of Kerr’s scenes were re-shot.
• The first season is based mostly on the first book of Charlaine Harris’ book ‘Dead Until Dark’.
• This is not the first time that actor ‘Stephen Moyer’ has played a vampire. He also was a vampire in the British 6-part TV series, Ultraviolet.
• The name of the fictional northern Louisiana town, Bon Temps, means “good time” in French.
• Alexander Skarsgård, who plays Eric, is from Sweden and the language spoken by him and his subjects is Swedish.
