True Blood: The Complete First Season Overview

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) works as a waitress at the rural bar Merlotte's. Though outwardly a typical young woman, she keeps a dangerous secret: she has the ability to hear the thoughts of others. Her situation is further complicated when the bar gets its first vampire patron—173-year old Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer)—and the two outsiders are immediately drawn to each other.

True Blood is a dark and sexy tale that boldly delves into the heart—and the neck—of the Deep South. The series creator and executive producer, Alan Ball, is also the writer of the Oscar-winning Best Picture American Beauty and the creator of the Emmy-winning HBO series Six Feet Under.
