In 2006, Rachel Caine published the first novel of what would become the Morganville Vampires series,Glass Houses. She had no idea then that the series would become so wildly popular (translated into languages in 22 countries), or that her readers would become so passionate about making a film or TV series a reality. Read more about the books here…
In 2009, Morganville was optioned for film and television, but as so often happens, it just didn’t work out, despite the wonderful producer behind the effort and three solid years of work. So in 2013, Rachel spoke with legendary online guru Felicia Day of Geek & Sundry, who agreed that it might be an interesting thing to try adapting the material to an online audience. It made a lot of sense, because with the worldwide readership for the books, making it available simultaneously to everyone around the world would be a huge advantage. Felicia also introduced Rachel to Blake Calhoun, another award-winning producer and director who happened to be in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, close to Rachel … practically neighbors!
Blake and Rachel discussed the idea and decided to go to the fans with it, in the form of a Kickstartercrowdfunding campaign … which raised over $80,000 for the production of the online show! Then Geek & Sundry came in with additional funding, and the show really got underway in earnest.
Rachel wrote six scripts, and work began in planning the production itself. Blake and Rachel decided to shoot the show in Dallas, and found some fantastic locations that were perfect for Morganville. Casting went on via online auditions, plus in person in Dallas, Austin, New Orleans and Los Angeles, and by the time we were finished we’d found what we believe is the perfect cast to embody our story.
So what can you do to help, if you love the show? Watch it! It’s that simple. Help us spread the love of Morganville, because the more views we get, the better our chances of making a Season 2.
Thanks for being a Morganville Resident!

This owner of Morganville’s most popular gathering spot, Common Grounds, is helpful. A little too helpful, perhaps.

Clever and determined, Claire thinks she’s ready for anything Morganville can throw at her. But is she?
Jordan Farris as Shane
A Morganville native who hates everything about vampires. Shane’s ready to take the fight to them … whatever it costs.
Haileigh Todd as Eve
Morganville’s only Goth girl doesn’t mind pissing off the vampires … particularly Brandon, who wants her under his thumb.
Ben Easter as Michael
A talented musician, Michael wants out of his family’s old home, and Morganville … but you can’t always get what you want. Especially here.
Chase Jeffery as Myrnin
He might be mad. He could be bad. But he’s certainly brilliant … and his secrets could be a reason for Claire to consider staying in Morganville.
Afomia Hailemeskel as Monica
Monica’s rich, spoiled, and a daddy’s girl … and her daddy is the mayor of Morganville. So she gets what she wants. Even if she wants you dead.
Gregory Connors as Brandon
One of the meanest, most dangerous vampires in Morganville, with a taste for vengeance … and power.
Nikki Donley as Hannah Moses
A rare thing in Morganville: an honest cop. She likes to play by the rules … but not the vampires’ rules.
I enjoyed the first couple of episodes. Yeah it was a bit rushed and some of the actors felt like they were trying to hard or over acting. However it was still a good adaptation and fun to watch. I plan on staying tuned!
