Charlaine Harris, Author of books that sparked 'True Blood' gets a bite from CBS

CBS is hoping to strike lightning with the creator of the hit novels that sparked "True Blood."
The network is developing a project centered on a series of Harper Connelly mystery novels written by Charlaine Harris, the author of the "Sookie Stackhouse" novels that have been the basis for the hit HBO series.
