'True Blood' Names Mark Hudis as New Showrunner


The co-executive producer of the hit HBO series will replace Alan Ball if the show is renewed for a sixth season.

"True Blood" has found Alan Ball's successor for the possible season 6. Co-executive producer Mark Hudis has signed an overall deal with HBO, which will see him being upped to executive producer/showrunner if the vampire-themed series is ordered for another new season, a spokesperson for the network has confirmed.

Ball, who created the hit vampire series, announced in February this year that he would step down as the day-to-day showrunner by the end of season 5. He, however, will still be involved with the show in a supervisory capacity.

As for Hudis, he has been working on the show since the fourth season. His other credits include FOX's "That '70s Show", ABC's "Miss Guided" and Showtime's "Nurse Jackie".

"True Blood" itself is set to kick off its fifth season on Sunday, June 10 at 9 P.M. on HBO. Newly released synopsis for the premiere episode reveals that Sookie and Lafayette struggle with the aftermath of Tara's shooting, Eric gets a visit from the Vampire Authority, the werewolf pack comes after Sam, while Jason is visited by the recently turned Rev. Steve Newlin.
