Moonlight has been picked up by the Living television network in the UK. Sophia Myles will be seen by her home audience. :) Let's hope they treat her well.
I like the blurb Living has on the main page of its website about our show.....
"A handsome vampire who doesn't want to suck our blood and a foxy internet investigative reporter - yes, Moonlight does sound tasty!"
They did a nice little write up about the program to get their viewers ready.
Recently voted Best New TV Drama by The People's Choice Awards 2008 in the US, Moonlight is already leaving its mark on US viewers and arrives on LIVING this February.
Private Investigator Mick St John (Alex O'Loughlin, The Shield) is a vampire who ironically makes it his mission to help people, rather than adhere to the usual vampiric tendencies. Teaming up with beautiful and tenacious reporter Beth Turner (Sophia Myles, Hallam Foe, Doctor Who), Mick makes it his mission to uncover murders and mysteries and protect the innocent. Garlic and ornate crucifixes are no match for this modern-day vampire; a stake through the heart will only render a vampire paralyzed... but only until someone kindly removes it.
In a life-altering twist of fate, Mick St John was bitten 55 years ago by his new bride, the seductive Coraline, (Shannyn Sossoman, A Knight's Tale), on their wedding night. Forever 30 years of age, Mick is as handsome and charismatic as the day he was 'turned'. With only a handful of like-minded confidantes for company, including the eternally young, wealthy and mischievous Josef (Jason Dohring, Veronica Mars), a 400 year old vampire hedge-fund trader who relishes his uniqueness, Mick fills his infinite days protecting the living, including beautiful, ambitious Internet investigative reporter Beth Turner (Sophia Myles).
But, unbeknownst to Beth, she has met Mick before. One night many years ago, Mick saved her from being kidnapped by Coraline as a young girl, making him realise he wanted to use his powers for good, not evil. Now their paths cross again, and Mick feels a distinctive bond with Beth, who has grown into a beautiful, courageous woman. Mick knows he can't pursue his feelings without exposing the part of him that would make him a monster in Beth's eyes.
As he lives between two realities, fighting his adversaries among the undead and falling in love, he discovers the mysteries and pleasures that a valuable life has to offer.
MOONLIGHT, sinking its teeth into LIVING this February.
Moonlight premieres in England on Tuesday, February 19th, 2008 at 10:00 PM on the Living Channel.
