Beautiful Creatures ...

Twilight. The Lord of the Rings. Harry Potter. "True Blood". "The Vampire Diaries." There are so many book series out there looking to attain the level of success that those titles have had transitioning to both the big and the small screens. Warner Brothers is about to start banking on another one -- Beautiful Creatures.

Variety reports that Warner has acquired Beautiful Creatures, the first of a five-novel series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (which drops in book stores tomorrow), with Richard LaGravanese writing and directing the first feature film.

Ethan Wate, a popular high school student, hates living in a small town in South Carolina where nothing happens -- until he meets and becomes bewitched by Lena Duchanne, a 16-year-old whose family has moved back to town and who wishes for a mundane life. The star-crossed couple has to confront an age-old curse that has haunted her family for generations, as she comes to grips with her powers.


'True Blood' cracks the Producers Guild TV field

The Producers Guild of America announced the nominees in the television series and non-fiction television categories for the 21st Annual PGA Awards.

While the nominees are largely a familiar and traditional lot, without a single new Fall 2009 drama or comedy on the list, the PGA did manage to recognize a few fresh names, including HBO's "True Blood" in the drama category.

The Norman Felton Producer of the Year Award in Episodic Television - Drama nods are led by last year's winner, AMC's "Mad Men," while ABC's "Lost" and "Dexter" are also repeat nominees. Coming off a second season in which it broke ratings records seemingly every week, "True Blood" is new to the field, as is "Breaking Bad," stablemate to "Mad Men" at AMC.

With True Blood starting production on its third season this week, the spoilers are starting to flow as freely as Type O-neg at Fangtasia! The biggie: Casting is now underway for a role that sounds suspiciously like it can only be that of Sam’s mother!
Debuting in episode 2, middle-aged Melinda Mickens, The Ausiello Files’ sources say, is just about the only character in history who lives in more trash than Oscar the Grouch. And since she and equally filthy hubby Joe Lee share the same surname as Tommy, the character this column’s already reported is Sam’s brother… well, you can do that math, can’t you?

The show is also on the hunt for a knockout to play Crystal Norris, a mysterious beauty who bewitches one of our alpha males. (Figuratively. Um, I think.) She’ll also make her first appearance in the second eppy.

But wait, there’s more…
