Netflix has ordered young adult vampire series First Kill based on the short story by New York Times best-selling author Victoria “V. E.” Schwab, who serves as creator, writer, and executive producer.
The short story was published in Imprint's Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite, a collection of short stories about vampires that came out in September.
The show's official logline says "When it's time for teenage vampire Juliette 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. 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."
Netflix has ordered eight episodes of one hour each.
V. E. Schwab created the series and will serve as a co-writer and executive producer. Felicia D. Henderson (The Punisher, Empire, Gossip Girl, Everybody Hates Chris, Soul Food) serves as writer, showrunner, and executive producer.
Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss also serve as executive producers through Belletrist Productions.
