“Six Feet Under” and "True Blood" fans, it looks like this one is for you: HBO is putting Alan Ball featuring yet another show about dead people, “All Signs of Death.”
Much like “True Blood” – which has its literary roots in Charlaine Harris’s series of novels - “All Signs of Death” will be adapted from Charlie Huston’s crime noir novel, “The Mystic Arts of Erasing Death.”
With Ball behind the scenes as executive producer and director, and Huston as scriptwriter, “All Signs” will tell the story of a 20-something underachiever who discovers he's got a talent in cleaning crime scenes in Los Angeles, and becomes exposed to the city’s gritty underbelly.
We’re not exactly sure how Ball is going to work sex into this yet, but judging from his track record, we have no doubt he will. However, we also haven’t picked up Huston’s novel – amateur book reviewers: should we? – and if you have cracked those covers, let us know what we can look forward to.
