In order to continue with the vampire trend, "Unique Features" and "Constantin Film" have decided to adapt Cassandra Clare’s fantasy books "The Mortal Instruments" and make a TV Show out of it.
"The Mortal Instruments", a successful series of four novels, revolves around teenager Clary Fray’s search for her missing mother, which leads her to a city filled with mysterious fairies, raucous warlocks, vampires and other demons.
With its unique, imaginative and universally appealing world seen through the eyes of a 16-year-old girl the whole series has a huge fan base, so it could make a popular TV project, unless the audience, fed up with vampires and other bloodsucking creatures, turns it into a mega flop :)

I don't think audiences are fed up with Vampires, not yet. I don't know about these novels, but they look like another female-oriented fantasy fiction.
Not that there's anything wrong with that genre. It's always been popular. Only recently did filmmakers realise its true (financial) potential. I mean, guys may drool over latex-wearing Kate Beckinsale as Selene in Underworld, but it's nothing compared to a level of adoration female fans have for characters in "similar" movies. And those "female-version" movies cost less and have more devoted fans than "male" action fantasies. They won't whine over internet about this and that, they won't try to act as directors/writers/casting_directors themselves. That really put pressure off of studios for possible sequels.

Yep, girls have always loved bad guys more than the good ones, although they don't like to admit it :)
