First Kill is based on a short story by author V.E. Schwab in the recently released book Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite. Schwab will serve as creator, writer, and executive producer of the eight-episode series about "teenage vampire Juliette who is poised to make her first kill so that she can take her place among a powerful vampire family," per EW. "Juliette eyes new girl in town, Calliope, as her first victim, but Calliope is a vampire hunter descended from a celebrated family of slayers. As the two circle each other, they discover neither is as easy to kill as they might have assumed. Things get complicated when they realize how easy it is to fall for each other. The plot sounds like Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Twilight but with Schwab's signature enthrallingly dark edge, making it a show to sink your teeth into."
