Two upcoming TV shows are going to be shot in the metro Atlanta area: the CW’s “Vampire Diaries” and Fox’s “Past Life.”
Thank last year’s tax incentives boosts for these two shows being here, along with Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva.”
Neither show has any major stars. “Vampire Diaries” clearly is playing off the popularity of the “Twilight” film and book series and the momentum of HBO’s “True Blood.” Vampires are hot! And since this is the CW, this will be a teen-oriented vampire show to boot. “Vampire Diaries” is based on a series of books by L.J. Smith.
The show is set to air after “Supernatural” on Thursdays at 9 p.m. this fall.
