- both the novels by Tanya Huff and the Blood Ties TV series starring Christina Cox, Kyle Schmid and Dylan Neal. Vicki Nelson, Henry Fitzroy and Mike Celluci made flesh .....

What would have happened in season two ...

There were never any scripts written for season two of the-never-to-be-filmed-again Blood Ties - However, there was an outline of what would happen.
Showrunner Peter Mohan has kindly shared those plans with us - you can read them on the Blood Ties Season 2 page

New Vicki short story

Tanya Huff has written a new Vicki Nelson short story for the vampire collection "Evolve", published by Edge. Edge says it's already available - Amazon.com says it will be released in September 2010.

Blood Ties has just been released on blu-ray in the US - sadly still without the extensive extras that fans were once promised. I wish Vicki Nelson could unravel THAT mystery!

Henry Fitzroy could be back!

'Smoke and Mirrors' for Fremantle Corp. New vampire series based on books by Canadian Tanya Huff

By Etan Vlessing

April 8, 2010, 09:42 AM ET TORONTO -- The Fremantle Corporation and Kaleidoscope Entertainment are developing a new vampire series, "Smoke & Mirrors," based on the "Smoke" book series by Canadian fantasy author Tanya Huff.

Kaleidoscope in 2007 turned Huff's "Blood" book series into the Lifetime Television series "Blood Ties," which also aired in Canada on Citytv and Space.

Fremantle and Kaleidoscope are now shopping "Smoke & Mirrors," starting at MIPTV, as a possible Canadian-European co-production. The urban fantasy series will see the return of Henry Fitzroy, the 474 year-old vampire, in a series of paranormal misadventures experienced on a fictional TV series shoot.

Kaleidoscope president Randall Zalken will executive produce the Canadian vampire drama.

The launch of "Smoke & Mirrors" comes as Toronto-based Fremantle continues developing a slate of commercial dramas as co-productions for global distribution.

And from C21Media:
Fremantle's vampire flies to Cannes

With vampires in the ascendancy these days, Toronto-based Fremantle Corporation is developing a new blood-sucking drama based on books penned by Blood Ties scribe Tanya Huff.

Kaleidoscope Entertainment and Fremantle Corporation will be seeking coproduction partners for Smoke & Mirrors at MipTV next week, for a project that is based on the Smoke books written by Huff.

The story follows a vampire who heads to LA where one of his graphic novels is being adapted into a TV series. The show's exec producer Randy Zalken spoke of the show's "wonderful characters, tension-easing humour and devious, supernatural plot twists."

Kaleidoscope and Fremantle are trying to get this project off the ground as a possible EU/Canada coproduction. The show comes after the success of Vampire Diaries on The CW and the Twilight movie franchise.

Tanya Huff posted on Twitter that it would be set in Vancouver, not LA.
Good luck at MIPTV in Cannes guys!
MIPTV, April 12-16, 2010, Cannes, France.

Blood Ties US DVD release is non-anamorphic wide screen

Screen capture from the US DVD
Contrary to what's been listed on Amazon, the US Blood Ties DVD release IS wide screen - the same format as the UK and The German release. It has black bands at top and bottom, but once the black bands have been removed, the image 1,78:1 (16:9)
The only difference is that the US image is slightly smaller - only 720 pixels wide where the others are 768 pixels wide. That might be due to the difference between the NTSC and the PAL formats.
It's region 0 so should it play worldwide.

I also added two 2010 conventions on Tanya Huff's page and added the biography that used to be on the Meisha Merlin publisher's site.
