Cult Hero Blade Slices Into Television
Officially announced today: Spike TV has ordered 11 episodes of the new series, Blade, based on the Marvel superhero vampire-human hybrid who slays vampires.This gritty, non-stop action premise is a perfect choice for the male-centered network, but we’re willing to bet the ladies will enjoy it, too!
“Blade” is perfectly suited for Spike TV and its male viewers,” says Pancho Mansfield, Executive Vice President, Original Programming at Spike TV. “The new ‘Blade’ promises to capture what men want to see: thrilling action and effects combined with an intelligent and highly creative story.”
David S. Goyer, who wrote the screenplays for the “Blade” trilogy as well as Batman Begins, serves as executive producer and co-wrote the script with popular comic book author Geoff Johns. Peter O’Fallon (“Suicide Kings,” “Eureka,” “American Gothic”) serves as director.
Spike TV’s “Blade” focuses on Marvel’s eponymous immortal warrior of the same name fighting a shadowy underworld of vampires who want to destroy the human race. The title character is a half-man, half-vampire who uses his incredible powers and skills to fearlessly battle the demonic creatures of the night in a blood-drenched crusade to prevent the ascendance of vampires over mankind.
