Miscellaneous Show Details

The Blade tv series on Spike TV will be Spike TV's first original scripted series. Spike TV first ordered the 2 hour pilot, and has since ordered 11 more episodes.

Production took place in Vancouver this past spring and was produced by New Line Television. David S. Goyer, the screenwriter and producer of the Blade trilogy as well as Batman Begins, is both writer and executive producer for the Blade television series. Popular comic book writer Geoff Johns is also taking on roles as writer and producer.

The series is expected to follow the continuity of the Blade movies, but will introduce new characters and storylines. As such, the only expected returning character from the movies is Blade himself, who'll be played not be Wesley Snipes, but by Kirk 'Sticky' Jones.

There's been a lot of money thrown at the series, and though promotion has kicked up a few notches, there's still relatively little information out there about the show. Once I find out about it, I'll definitely be posting it here, so check back often. If you have any news tips or information, please send them my way either through the comments section or the contact form.

Comments Welcome!

I just want to emphasize that I'd like this blog to be very open and inviting for people to contribute either by posting comments or by using the contact form. It'd be great if we can get some good conversations going in the comment sections, as I'm sure there'll be a lot to talk about after each episode.

Also, with this site being extremely new, don't hesitate to send me any suggestions, bugs, or anything else you can think of. I really am hopeful that this place will be great place for people to come and get the latest and greatest Blade series news and info. If there's any features you like to see, leave a comment here or shoot me an email via the contact form. Also, if you've got any good news tips or topics you'd like me to write about, I'd love to hear it.

The Blade TV Series Blog Is Open For Business!

I'm in the final stages of setting this blog up, so please excuse the mess. In case you're curious what this place is (which should be obvious from the title), you can hit up the about page. If you're too lazy to click the link, below is a bit of what I plan on doing with the site.

Like the title and domain says, this place is all about Spike TV's new television series Blade. If you want you can head on over to Spike TV's official Blade site, though the information there is quite limited. There is a nice trailer to wet your appetite and a bit of background information, but nothing you probably haven't seen or heard already.

If you haven't yet watched the movies, I'd highly recommend it. There hasn't been word on how closely the series will relate to the movies, though the series is rumored to take place after the third movie (Blade: Trinity).

Anyway, back to what this site's purpose is. Basically, I'm a huge fan of vampire movies and vampire television shows. I'm not one of those people that pretends to be a vampire, dressing in all black and drinking blood, but I do love a good vampire flick. I'm especially fond of the Blade movies and am definitely looking forward to the television series.

With that, I decided to start up a blog that will include the latest news, interviews, editorials, humor, and other goodies relating to the television series. I'll also be doing a recap and "review" of sorts of each episode. I hope to be adding many new features along the way so that this place is always fresh and interesting.

Yes, it's kind of odd to be creating a fansite of a show that isn't even out yet, but I figured if I want it to be a semi popular site that I should get as early a jump as possible. For the days leading up to the series opener on June 28th, I'll be posting all the news and information I can find so make sure you check back often.
