With the launch today of Minisode #3, we’re halfway through the six minisodes written by “True Blood” creator Alan Ball. This one features Anna Paquin’s Sookie, Rutina Wesley’s Tara, and fan favorite Nelsan Ellis’ Lafayette.
As meticulously crafted as the show itself, the “True Blood” minisodes were shot on location by the series’ production team and feature lead characters Sookie, Bill, Eric, Tara, Sam, Jason, Lafayette, Jessica, and Pam in all new, original scenes with a nod to past and future storylines. The 3- to 5-minute minisodes promise to entice “Trubies” as well as potential viewers with scenes that will whet their appetites for things to come.
Following its debut on TV.com, the third minisode will be available for streaming and sharing at HBO.com and the official True Blood Facebook page beginning on Wednesday, May 12, and can be seen on HBO starting on Sunday, May 16, and HBO On Demand on Monday, May 17. Subsequent minisodes will have exclusive debuts each week on select online sites, followed by HBO.com. The minisodes will make their network premiere every Sunday night immediately after the Season 2 encore presentations at 8pm, with HOD premieres each Monday.
“The minisodes provide a wonderful and rare opportunity to take a deeper look into Bon Temps and the characters that live in this colorful town,” said Alan Ball, Creator and Executive Producer of “True Blood”. “The scenes are so much fun, and the performances as stellar as always. I can’t wait to share them with everyone, old fans and new.”
