Another Charlaine Harris Series Gets TV Time:
Fans of HBO’s True Blood are both loving and lamenting Season 7 with this being the very final season for the vampire show. However, news has just come to hand announcing that another of author Charlaine Harris’s series will be made for TV!
This time round it will be the Aurora Teagarden series rather than her Southern Vampire Mystery series that will be getting air time. And, instead of a TV series, Hallmark will be making a series of movies based on the novels. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that former Full House actress Candace Cameron Bure will be playing the role of Aurora ‘Roe’ Teagarden.
This series spans eight books, starting with Real Murders and concludes with Poppy Done to Death. The breakdown on the series is as follows:
The drama centers on librarian Teagarden, a crime buff, lover of mystery novels and a member of the Real Murders Club, which meets to analyze famous crimes and mysteries. Her passion and insight about true crime ends up putting her at the center of different crimes that happen in her community. She will do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of these mysteries.
It is unclear just how many books in this series will be turned into movies or how closely they will even follow in the books footsteps, but Trubie fans will be excited none the less! And as a fan of this book series, I can’t wait to see another of Charlaine Harris’s series come to life on the TV screen.
