Best-selling author Jonathan Maberry’s visionary mind is coming to a TV screen near you. Production has begun on V Wars based on the novels and comics of the same name. The series will run for ten episodes and stream on Netflix.
V Wars centers around a virus outbreak that triggers a dormant gene in humans and turns five percent of the worlds population into vampires. Of course, this turns into a global epidemic pitting vampire against humans, and of course there is good and bad on both sides. The show will star Ian Somerhalder (Lost, The Vampire Diaries) as Dr. Luther Swann, Adrian Holmes (Elysium) as Michael Fayne. Peter Outerbridge (Nikita, Orphan Black) as Calix Niklos, and Jacky Lai (Silent Hill: Revelation) as Kaylee Vo.
Jonathan Maberry is a prolific writer and an all around nice guy. He has worked as an editor, comic book writer, teacher/lecturer, novelist, playwright. He is best known for the Joe Ledger Series, Pine Deep Trilogy, and many others. Maberry will be attending San Diego Comic Con this year so be sure to look him up stop by get some stuff signed and have a chat.
