The plot of the project is built around the vampires Louis and Lestat. The story is shown in the form of memories of Louis telling a young reporter the story of his transformation into a vampire. The action begins in 1791, when young Louis, as a planter, blames himself for his brother’s suicide, which leads him to a binge and attempts to kill himself. In this state, the vampire Lestat finds him and turns him, and later settles on the hero’s plantation, feeding on the blood of his slaves.
Louis himself cannot accept what has happened and drinks the blood of the cows. The deaths of many of the blacks force those who remain to rebel and burn down the estate, and so Lestat and Louis escape to New Orleans. Here their cohabitation begins, which makes Louis increasingly hate his own maker. A new adaptation of an old story will take place on AMC, with a series release date set for October 2, 2022.
