HBO Working on “Hip-Hop Vampire” Series, ‘Thirst’

by Trey Hilburn III

HBO has been busy since their launch for HBO MAX. This could be because of the initial, disappointing amount of original content they offered. It has been picking up a bit more on both HBO and HBO MAX fronts. Their latest – a “hip-hop” vampire drama” called Thirst.

The series description from Variety goes like this:

Thirst tells the story of a brilliant but cocky Atlanta rapper who thinks he’s found his way to stardom when he links up with hip-hop’s hottest group. But he has no idea they are hiding a terrifying secret: They are a family of vampires with roots going back centuries.

The series comes from creators, Leah Benavides Rodriguez and Carlito Rodriguez and is based on a concept created by Kevin Jordan.

“Music has been integral to both our lives, and ‘Thirst’ is the perfect opportunity to blend genres, while exploring the intersection of fame, culture and what it means to be American,” Benavides and Rodriguez said in a statement.

If you know me, then you know, I’m down for anything vampire. Well, not Twilight, but practically anything else vampire. There simply isn’t enough of it going around at the moment.
