The cable network has ordered an eight-part series based on the book, which was famously turned into a 1994 movie starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.
This comes after AMC Networks acquired the rights to 18 of Rice’s books last year.
The company is looking to turn Rice’s collection of novels, which include the Vampire Chronicles and Mayfair Witches series, into a franchise with Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul producer Mark Johnson overseeing the rollout. Johnson, who has an overall agreement with AMC Studios, will take the lead on the universe.
