Showtime has just released a trailer for their TV series version of Let the right one inand with that trailer comes the announcement that the premiere episode will be available streaming and on demand to all Showtime subscribers starting Friday, October 7Th. The show will then make its debut on the air on Sunday, October 9on 10:00 PM ET/PT. Check out the trailer embedded above to see if you’ll be interested in tuning in.

Based on the John Ajvide Lindqvist novel (buy it HERE), which previously served as inspiration for a 2008 Swedish film directed by Tomas Alfredson (see it HERE) and a 2010 English-language film directed by Matt Reeves (see it HERE), Let the right one in centers on

Mark and his 12-year-old daughter whose life was changed forever 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire. Locked away at the age of 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed life, only able to go out at night while her father does his best to give her the minimal amount of human blood she needs to last stay alive.

Here is a little more information:

After she was bitten by a mysterious creature, Eleanor and her father, Mark, were forced to live in the shadows and commit shameful acts to keep her alive. Returning to New York City, Eleanor meets a friend who rekindles her desire to regain her humanity, even as her condition evokes an animalistic power.

The series gets the main role Demián Bichir as Mark; Madison Taylor Baez as the youthful vampire Eleanor; Anika Noni Rose as Naomi, Mark and Eleanor’s neighbor who happens to be a homicide detective; Grace Gummer as Claire, “the heir to a pharmaceutical empire and a brilliant scientist”; Kevin Carroll as Zeke Dawes, “the charismatic owner of a successful restaurant and one of Mark’s oldest confidants as well as one of the few people who know about Eleanor’s condition”; Jacob Buster as Peter, “suffering from the same affliction as Eleanor. When his father tests a potential cure on him that backfires, a terrifying monster is unleashed”; Nick Stahl as Matthew, “an ex-soldier and fiercely loyal fixer for the Logan family, whose clean, gentle exterior belies a ferocity beneath”; Željko Ivanek as Arthur, “a scientist who is Claire’s father and the former CEO of a once proud but now disgraced pharmaceutical empire”; Fernanda Andrade as Elizabeth, “Mark’s spirited wife and devoted mother to Eleanor. Elizabeth’s love for her family motivates her to do anything to protect them”; Jimmie Saito as Ben, “a dedicated NYPD homicide detective, a loyal partner and true friend for Naomi”; Josh Wingate as Roland, “former special ops and a loyal disciple of Matthew”; Caroline Neff as Danielle Wilson, “the talented chef at Zeke’s restaurant and the new boss of Mark”; and Ian Foreman as Isaiah, “the quiet , sensitive and small for his age, who loves magic and is an easy target for the other boys at school. He finds a true friend in Eleanor, but he has no idea what a threat she poses.”

Seith Mann and Andrew Hinderaker are the showrunners, and Mann directed the pilot episode from a script by Hinderaker. This Let the right one in is produced by Tomorrow Studios. Hinderaker and Mann (who will direct several episodes beyond the pilot) serve as executive producers along with Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements for Tomorrow Studios (a partnership between Adelstein and ITV Studios). Alissa Bachner is co-executive producer and Bichir is a producer on the series.

The Swedish version of 2008 Let the right one in is one of my favorite movies and I don’t see how this show can live up to it. But maybe it could be good when taken on its own.
