True Blood Sites

July 15, 2008

True Blood, a show based on the Southern Vampire Series by Charlaine Harris, will be airing on HBO starting this fall. There’s some interesting online marketing going on, and when they aren’t sending samples of their synthetic blood beverage to bloggers, they’ve set up a few websites. is the site for Tru Blood, the first synthetic blood drink. The age verification form is a clever touch. You can browse the blood type selection, and take a quiz to find out which one would fit you best (I’m apparently a Type A type of gal). You can also get some desktops and screen savers.

The other interesting True Blood site that I’ve seen is It “chronicles the amazing days we live in as vampires attempt to integrate with humans.” There’s a blog and a forum, but new visitors can most easily catch up with the story by watching the videos here. I’m loving the videos and news articles, though I haven’t had time to go through all the archives yet.

Edit: Today they linked to a new vampire dating site. The profiles are pretty entertaining and so is the questionnaire.

BloodCopy posted footage of a Senator speaking up for vampire rights:

Of course, not everyone is so accepting:

  2. I’m so excited about True Blood Season 2. I’m a huge fan of the show and the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I actually thought the first Season of True Blood was great, it only took the previews and initial promos to get me excited. Awaiting patiently for Season 2 this June 09
