SWEET BLOOD

TV Series. Horror Drama.
Co-written with Patricia Gomez Zlatar

Lucas, a vampire living in the suburbs with his pregnant human wife, is tracked down by members of his blood drinking tribe. They face imminent extinction unless Lucas finds a cure for their inability to reproduce, something he has vowed never to undertake.

In Sweet Blood, vampires come from an isolated tribe plagued by a fatal allergy to the sun and lethal anemia. They live sheltered in their insular mountain stronghold, having created a society with its own rigid rules and religion, where most members are totally unaware of the outside world. Lucas left to forge a new life over a century ago, and is now quietly settled in suburbia with his pregnant wife Miriam. The series begins when two tribe members, Marek and Trina, have tracked him down because the tribe is dying off and is unable to reproduce. They need Lucas’s help and will not leave until he finds a solution. This turn of events will throw all their lives in upheaval.
