Music will play a big role in the series, featuring up-and-coming Goth-metal-influenced bands including Zombi, Junius, Jesu, Watch Me Burn and Prophet 7:13.
"The vampire genre is hotter than ever," FearNet president Diane Robina said. "There is no better way to marry the culture of vampires with cutting-edge music than by partnering with Mary Lambert for this series."
