Anna Pacquin lands new gig with HBO


Deadline is reporting that Anna Pacquin, the kiwi actress from True Blood has done a deal with HBO that will see her and husband, Stephen Moyer’s production company CASM, develop content for the US cable network on a two year deal.

With their long-running vampire series coming to an end this summer, True Blood stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are staying in business with HBO.

The duo’s production company CASM has signed a two-year, first-look deal with HBO to develop series, films and miniseries. That may include new starring vehicles for Paquin or Moyer as, in addition to producing, the pact includes options for the two to act and direct. This marks the first foray into television for CASM Films, which Paquin and Moyer launched in 2012 with producing partners Cerise Hallam Larkin and Mark Larkin, who, like the True Blood duo, are a married couple.

The company so far had been focused on features, producing the 2013 indie Free Ride, which starred Paquin, with a number of projects in development. Those include Twinkle, to be directed by Howie Deutch and starring Moyer; Pink Hotel, based on the novel by Anna Stothard which Paquin will write and direct; Bury This, based on the novel by Andrea Portes who is adapting for Paquin to star; Columbia, written by and to star Denis O’Hare which Moyer will direct; and an adaptation of Martin Millar’s Lonely Werewolf Girl.
