Alan Ball shifts from the dead to the undead

VampireSix Feet Under fans disconsolate after the conclusion of that fabled series can take solace: Alan Ball is developing a vampire show for HBO. Ball, who eons ago worked at Adweek magazine, has agreed to develop an hourlong pilot based on the Southern Vampire book series by Charlaine Harris (Dead Until Dark, Living Dead in Dallas, Club Dead, and Dead to the World). Hopefully the pilot episode will take a page from Six Feet Under’s book and have creepy vampire commercials.
