EXCLUSIVE: BRINGING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH 2018'S FIRST PICKUP!
TheVPN is bringing in the New Year right with its first pickup of 2018! "Nightfall," created by Brian Melanson, is a one-hour supernatural drama that focuses on the dynamic vampires, vampire hunters, and what happens when two of them develop a relationship forbidden by fate. The series follows Phoebe Reynolds, a 17 year old Vampire, who returns to her hometown to start her life over. While there she meets Clark Adams, a descendant of her first love from centuries ago. As she begins to know Clark, they both soon discover Blackridge is not what it used to be. With mysterious murders and secrets from the past coming back to haunt them, they find that Blackridge is caught up in a long running supernatural war that is no where close to ending.
Below is the official synopsis:
"What if the night was alive? What if every legend of things that goes bump in the night is real? What if you were one of many to stop them all? What if you found yourself caught in the middle of a supernatural war that has been brewing since the dawn of man? For some of the citizens of Blackridge, New York… this is their fate.
Phoebe Reynolds has been a vampire since 1776. She has lived through all of the greatest moments in American History. But now she wants to settle down and live a normal life. She returns back to the town where she used to call home and enrolls in High School. There she meets two amazing people and one mysterious boy, Clark Adams. She finds herself drawn to him and finds herself falling for him. But when Phoebe and Sarah realize that history is repeating itself in Blackridge, they are caught up in the Supernatural War they thought was over."
When asked about the pickup, series creator Brian Melanson had this to say, “Nightfall was an idea I had for years. I wanted Nightfall to be inspired by the tropes of well known supernatural series such as Buffy, The Vampire Diaries, Angel, etc. I toyed with it for years, trying to find the right story to tell, and I think I finally found it. A love story and a dark force. It’s exciting to be finally able to tell this story and bring readers on this journey.” And he went on to say this about what to expect from the series' first season, "What to expect from Nightfall is a lot of moments where you feel for the characters. Where they experience love, loss, pain, friendship, family — all of it in a span of a season. There’s a lot of twists and turns and it opens up a huge story that will drive the series for a long time. It’s all about getting there and I’m excited about taking the journey. Out of everything I created, this is something I’m the most proud of.”
NIGHTFALL is set to air sometime early this year, and will have a 10 episode first season. Watch out for more updates on the series coming soon!
