TV show description:
This drama is based on Charlaine Harris’ The Southern Vampire Mysteries novels. The storyline focuses on vampires and humans existing together in the fictional Louisiana town of Bon Temp.
Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is twice-orphaned, and had her life turned around by the supernatural. She’s a waitress at a bar named Merlotte’s and is also telepathic. Because of her special ability, she has a hard time forming lasting relationships. Sookie starts a love affair with a vampire named Bill after realizing that she can’t read his thoughts. He introduces her to a very different world and she’s worried that she’s not as bothered by it all as she should be. Nearly everyone in town turns against her for entering into the relationship with Bill.
