True Blood Creator Alan Ball to Produce New Television Show

Posted on the 11 August 2011 by Tbfansource @tbfansource

Alan BallAlan Ball, the genius behind HBO‘s True Blood, is adding a new job to his resume.  He has signed on to executive produce a new series entitled ‘Banshee‘ which will be airing on HBO’s sister network Cinemax.  The show will be set in Banshee, a small Amish Town in Pennsylvania, and will be about an ex-con who is a martial arts expert.  The dark comedy will have the ex-con posing as a murdered sheriff who will be delivering his own brand of justice while also working towards his own interests. 

No casting details have been released yet but shooting is set to begin in the spring.  The official word is that filming of ‘Banshee’ will not interfere with Ball’s work on True Blood which should be wrapping up the production of Season 5 at that time.
