Alan Ball's adaptation of Magnolia author Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Series is coming to HBO in September.

"True Blood" stars Anna Paquin and less famous people. The show, like the books, is set in a small Louisiana town, where vampires and humans co-exist (Japanese-made synthetic blood plays a role). Paquin plays Sookie Stakehouse, a telepathic waitress who falls in love with a vampire.

If you're a huge geek, you'll appreciate this just-launched viral marketing campaign.

Here's a fairly tepid review of the pilot (or what this reviewer thought was the pilot). With promises of graphic vampire-human sex!
