All We Know About Emma Roberts’ New Show
Netflix recently announced that it had given the series order to “First Kill.” As we already know, the show will be executive produced by Emma Roberts. The show is based on Juliette, a young adult, who has her “first kill.” Consequently, this “first kill” might also end up being her true love.
Moreover, the first season will have eight episodes and will be based on the short story, “First Kill” by Victoria “V.E.” Schwab. Schwab is set to serve as a writer, creator, and executive producer. Whereas Felicia D. Henderson will be serving as showrunner, co-writer, and executive producer.
It is not confirmed who will be cast in the series yet. However, some Emma Roberts fans want Emma to take on the role. Emma has recently developed an impressive filmography personality over the years. Some of her recent credits include American Horror Story, The Hunt, and Scream Queens.
Moreover, the series will be executive produced by Emma and Karah Preiss under Belletrist Productions. This production house reportedly outbid nearly two dozen other groups in getting the adaptation rights to the chilling story.
What is “First Kill” About?
Emma Roberts’ new show revolves around the main lead, Juliette who has to make her first kill so she can take her place in a powerful vampire family. In order to prove herself, she comes across a new girl in town named Calliope. Juliette decides to make Calliope her first kill. However, like all things in life, it does not turn out to be that easy.
Unfortunately, Calliope is a vampire hunter and comes from a family of celebrated slayers. Both of them find that it would not be easy to kill the other. However, maybe it would just be easier to fall in love with them than kill them.
We cannot wait for a new vampire series to drop on Netflix. And this time, it will be a production by Emma Roberts which makes it all the more exciting.
