Off and on during the last year, the HBO series "True Blood" has been shooting second unit stuff in Shreveport. Those of you who've caught the new promo trailer running on HBO undoubtedly heard the following bit of dialogue delivered by Anna Paquin, who plays Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic barmaid.
"Apparently there’s this vampire bar in Shreveport." (It's called Fangtasia.)
What the? The series is set here? If it is, that's fun. Since the marketing for the series is purposefully vague, it's hard to tell exactly what role Shreveport will play in the series. Since the city's name made the trailer, I assume The Shreve will get some pretty good second-unit face time.
The series is based on the Southern Vampire Mysteries books by Charlaine Harris. They books are set in a small Louisiana town. Read more here.
Below is the best video story I can find.
If you know more about the series, dish it out. It premieres Sept. 7 on HBO.
