Angie Good news here, copied this off a website:

Just read the following on :

Now that the strike is finally over, is there anything that you're looking at right now?

Anna Paquin: I was in the middle of shooting my new show for HBO, Alan Ball's show, True Blood. We shot three episodes, and we have another 10 to go, so that's what I'm doing as soon as production gets back up and running again.

Do you have any word on when that might start up again?

Anna Paquin: I think it's going to be in the next couple of weeks. As long as it takes to get everyone back and ready, so probably a couple of weeks.

There will be 13 episodes, awesome

This is GREAT news! I'll have to start saving my pennies so I can get HBO! ;)

message 4: by Angie (new)

Angie HA! me too... I am going to get HBO just for this show and then turn off HBO after it's over! :)

message 5: by Angie (new)

Angie Ms. Harris has said that she received news that the series will air in the fall. Not an exact date... but now it is the fall. So we have to wait longer!

The FALL?!! Bummer. Guess I should be glad it's still happening...

message 7: by Angie (new)

Angie Looks like Eric has been cast, here he is:

message 8: by Summer (new)

Summer (summerbp) | 3 comments He's a little younger than I'd pictured them casting, but cute! And definitely got the Nordic bit going on.

Angie I found this website though it is a little outdated. Check out the cast section... I think the guy cast for Sam is too young! I always pictured Sam as older.

Angie Business Week promo picture:

Looks like each episode will be an hour. And they say it will start to air in September.

Awesome article. Thanks Angie.
It's seems as thought HBO is being really picky about the shows it chooses to air. This is both good and scary for True Blood!

message 13: by Colleen (new)

Colleen I'm so glad I joined this group, or I never would have known about the show's existence! I cannot wait to watch it.. it hasn't started yet, right? :P

Angie True Blood has a premiere date of September 7, 2008! Very Exciting!

Also they have announced the actress to play Pam:

message 17: by Colleen (new)

Colleen She looks the part, that's for sure! Pam is one of my favorite characters.

message 18: by Ranata (new)

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) Wow. Good job! Pam cracks me up. She's perfect.

message 19: by Angie (new)

Angie Here is a little sneak peak at the show.. I think it's after the Big Love section:

message 20: by Nicole (new)

Nicole (nlojeda) | 471 comments Mod
She totally works as Pam! She has quite the resume too!

Angie OK people are getting to see the pilot episode already! This is the website to go to. you have to set up an account and then preview the pilot and then give your opinions. It is also tricky because they want a certain demographic watching so they ask you some questions... One person put this and got to watch:

age- 70 gender- female
country- united states
zipcode- 70112
education- HS graduate
-then it asks 2 more questions that I didn't write down(LOL something about your survery habits and something else)- I put none of the above for both
internet- high speed
cable- digital
TV viewing(how many hrs per wk)- 30+
which TV channels do you recieve- click all of them
-next is either what shows are your favorite or how often do you watch the TV stations(whichever one it isn't is the last question)- click on all the shows and that you watch all the stations daily
-this one has something to do with how much you enjoy your favorites(or something like that lol)- just click that you enjoy them all(you'll know what I'm saying when you see it lol)

I am going to try and good luck to anyone else who tries. Let us know if you get to watch!

message 23: by Angie (new)

Angie I totally got through and watched the whole episode! I am going to bed now and will post more tomorrow! Awesome !

message 24: by Angie (new)

Angie A little bit of Spoilers about the show:

So the episode was great. The only character I was so so about is Bill. Otherwise the cast was good. And being HBO there was sex! The first 5 minutes was weird but I guess they were just introducing the show. I loved Jason! And Tara is PERFECT. They did a really good job with her! I can't wait till the series comes out. Too exciting!

message 25: by Allison (new)

Allison | 1 comments I can't get it to work... the link re-routes me. Can I see it anywhere else?

message 26: by Angie (new)

Angie I don't know why you can't get it to work. I was reading threads from people and they kept trying and trying. Also that website might not be doing the preview anymore. It was a website where people go and get paid to take survey's and that was about 15 days ago or so, so maybe that survey is over. So I don't think it lasts that long. Let me look at it and see if I can get back in.

message 27: by Angie (new)

Angie That is the correct site but looks like they removed the preview! That stinks! It was a good pilot episode. I can't wait for the season to begin in September!

message 28: by Angie (new)

Angie HBO has launched a few websites to get people excited for the show... they are like a mystery to figure out. Here are two:

There will also be a special on HBO coming up soon:

message 29: by Angie (new)

Angie Here is a cool and fun website for the show too...

message 30: by Jess (new)

Jess (jessartisan) We watched 4 short bloodcopy segments on HBO on demand last night. They're interesting for the true blood/"coming out of the coffin" day backstory.

message 31: by Angie (new)

Angie Dang I forgot that was on! I wonder if they will rerun those?

message 32: by Mical (new)

Mical Getting excited about it. After seeing some behind the scenes footage I think that this will be a very good show!

message 33: by Angie (new)

Angie Here is a promo commercial for the show. I like how they are trying ot make like it's real:

message 34: by Ranata (new)

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) LOL! I'm a type O and Elvis and Truman Capote were both Type O drinkers! Yayy!

message 35: by Ranata (new)

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) Wow did you guys see this? looks like one of those busstop billboards!

message 36: by Jess (new)

Jess (jessartisan) The ads and billboards are so campy! Gotta love it.

message 37: by Angie (new)

Angie I love the campaign for the show! that sign is great!

message 38: by Phoebebb (new)

Phoebebb Ha ha. I love that ad!

message 39: by Jess (new)

Jess (jessartisan) The french ad is really funny.

message 40: by Phoebebb (new)

Phoebebb That ad is my favorite so far.

message 41: by Phoebebb (new)

Phoebebb I’m nervous about the show airing on HBO though. HBO is notorious for making you wait a long time before they will air another season. Does anyone remember Carnival? I got so hooked on that show and then the second season didn’t air until 2 years later!

message 42: by Angie (new)

Angie Plus didn't Carnival only have 2 seasons? I didn't get hooked on that show but I did LOVE Rome. And that only had two seasons. I heard it was canceled because it was too expensive to make because of all the costumes and sets.

message 43: by Phoebebb (new)

Phoebebb Yeah Carnival only had two seasons. I'm really excited about True Blood, but at the same time I'm not expecting much because it's airing on HBO.

message 44: by Sinsia (new)

Sinsia Check this out! All kinds of clips about Bon Temps etc. Really cool!

message 45: by Angie (last edited Jul 21, 2008 07:05PM) (new)

Angie HBO released the poster for the show:


message 46: by Angie (new)

Angie Also a new campaign from HBO

message 47: by Ranata (new)

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) I love it!

message 48: by Jess (new)

Jess (jessartisan) "Thou shall not crave thy neighbor." Haha!

message 49: by Bonnie (new)

Bonnie | 60 comments Wow great visual, clever. There will be lots more Sookie fans after this.

message 50: by Bonnie (new)

Bonnie | 60 comments This is so funny! Someone at HBO had a lot of fun on this one.
