We’ve been bugging CBS about getting a look at the new drama it for a few weeks now. It’s usually not a great sign when the pilot screeners are this long delayed. Back in May when the Joel Silver-produced vampire-detective skein was picked up, CBS offered only a 15-minute-or so glimpse of the show on its post-upfront screener mailer. Warner Bros. TV show stars Alix O’Laughlin as immortal private eye Mick St. John, who fights his natural vampire tendencies to help the living fight off the blood-thirsty attacks of his fellow vamps. We know that it’s undergone some recasting during the summer (Amber Valletta out, Sophia Myles in as the beautiful and ambitious reporter trying to get to the bottom of a string of unusual murders), so we’ll continue to give ’em the benefit of the doubt until we get a chance to see the finished product.
As of this writing, CBS is saying it’ll arrive early next week. Show’s set to preem on Sept. 28 in the spooky Friday night hammock slot between “Ghost Whisperer” and “Numbers.”
