Alan Ball Will Be Directing a New Project for Paramount

Alan Ball HBO True BloodThe genius mastermind behind True Blood will be blessing us with another creation! Alan Ball will be directing and producing an as-of-yet untitled project through his company, “Your Face Goes Here Entertainment.”  Ball developed the project with writer Elan Mastai, who is set to write the script.  According to insiders, this is “a dark comedy with a twist.”  It seems as though this new project will be a feature film, so True Blood fans really shouldn’t worry about this new project meaning the end of True Blood. With such masterpieces as Six Feet Under and True Blood under Alan Ball’s belt, this new project will undoubtedly be a must-see.

With the massive popularity True Blood has garnered, surely “Alan Ball” is a household name by now… would you watch anything created or directed by him?

    I’ll give it a try but I hope it doesn’t interfere with TB to the point where the new show is on and TB is not. That would just make me sad. 🙁

  • I totally would watch anything that was an Alan Ball creation. His twisted sense of humour gets me every time. AB is one of 2 reasons I started watching True Blood. The other was a certain Academy-Award winning actress 😉 Can’t wait to see what’s in store with this project!
