About True Blood:
True Blood: The Great Revelation tells of a world where vampires emerge from the shadows to join everyday society. After centuries of living in darkness, they are able to make their presence known with the advent of a synthetic blood â€“ Tru Blood â€“ created by a Japanese company, which allows them to co-exist peacefully with humans without murderous feedings.Â But for many humans this revelation is greeted with the fear of the unknown. In the midst of a new community of people struggling for acceptance in society, the ancient and wise â€œVampire Kingâ€ of California, Lamar, is summoned to Tokyo for a meeting with the executives of the company that produces Tru Blood, where heâ€™ll learn of their broader aspirations and the role theyâ€™ve devised for him.
The HBO series premieres September 7, 2008.
