So yes, you read that right... Amber Benson of 'Buffy' fame will be playing a vampire in a new show instead of slaying vampires. :)
If you didn't know, Amber has officially attached herself to play Amelie (the founder of Morganville) in an adaptation of The Morganville Vampires book series into a web series called Morganville: The Series. This show is being produced by one of the creators of PINK.
But before they celebrate too much, the Kickstarter campaign has to fund first. Today they crossed the $25k mark towards the goal of $75k... so they're 1/3rd of the way.
Here is some nice coverage of Amber's involvement in the campaign.
And here is the link to the actual Kicstarter campaign page.
They've got some really interesting rewards too. For only $40 you can get a digital copy of the script, exclusive postcard artwork and an HD download of Season 1. Or for those with deeper pockets, the $500 level you get all of the above plus a complete set of all 15 Morganville books autographed by Rachel Caine the author, along with a DVD, a poster and... well, it's a lot.
So please help if you can! A tweet or FB post is almost as good as becoming a financial backer. Almost. :)
