Alan Ball Penning a New Series
While some True Blood fans are mourning the loss of creator/showrunner Alan Ball, they shouldn't be too sad, considering the Oscar-winning writer is moving on to develop a brand new series (which is undoubtedly due to be just as addictive as his previous shows).
"I have a series idea that I'm working on and writing on spec and have two screenplays I'm trying to put together and I'm working on another one and then I have another one that's halfway finished... [The show] is unlike either Six Feet Under or True Blood; it's very different. I'd definitely say it's a drama but it's too early to talk about."
Ball didn't share much else about his new project, but he was happy to speak about handing over the reigns of showrunning and returning to his writing roots.
Speaking at a premiere party for True Blood's upcoming season six, Ball reflected on his departure from running a major TV show to his humble habit: "I'm just writing for the love of writing, getting back to what it used to be with just me and the computer."

The Six Feet Under creator also mused about the change in his workload, as season six of the hit vampire series was helmed by writer-producer Brian Buckner: "I can just relax and have fun; I don't have to give the speech, I don't have to worry about my voice going out, I don't have to worry about forgetting somebody's name and I can sit and watch the show as an audience member, which is really fun."
