Netflix Gives Series Order to Drama 'First Kill' Starring Emma Roberts

Netflix has today given a series order to the original drama series First Kill based on the short story by Victoria "V.E." Schwab. The drama will produce eight episodes for its first season, with Emma Roberts (American Horror Story) starring.

When it's time for teenage vampire Juliette to make her first kill so she can take her place among a powerful vampire family, she sets her sights on a new girl in town named Calliope. But much to Juliette's surprise, Calliope is a vampire hunter, from a family of celebrated slayers. Both find that the other won't be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.

Schwab created the series, with Felicia D. Henderson (The Quad) set to serve as showrunner. They will executive produce with Roberts and Karah Preiss. Belletrist Productions will produce.
