"This was something that I pitched to HBO and [creator] Alan Ball," the series' composer, Nathan Barr told the Associated Press.
According to Barr, the musical will keep the focus on Sookie Stackhouse, but be inspired more by the show's earlier seasons as opposed to the no-holds-barred drama True Blood has become. "I think we're really going to try to return to the roots of the show," Barr explained.
Series star Stephen Moyer, who appeared in NBC's The Sound of Music Live! in December, has already helped Barr put together some samples of the musical to present to HBO and Ball. Barr hopes to present a workshop version of the musical in a year's time, but says calling the production "Broadway bound" at this stage is premature.
"There's no guarantees," the composer said. "But I think the direction we're heading in is really exciting."
