True Blood

The story takes place in Bon Temps a small Louisiana town. A young woman Sookie Stackhouse works as a waitress at a local restaurant. Her love interest, a 173 year old vampire Bill Compton, looks like a man in his late twenties.

Its Bill’s associates that create problems for Sookie as she struggles to deal with her own powers…the ability to read  others thoughts.

As of August 2010, True Bloods has approximately 5 million viewers and has been booked for a fourth season.
