We know “True Blood” has some of the most dedicated fans in the world, and if you’re one of them, here’s your chance to be part of a Season 5 DVD virtual signing with stars Stephen Moyer and Kristin Bauer van Straten.
The contest, entitled “Fill in the Blood,” celebrates the launch of True Blood: The Complete Fifth Season on DVD/Blu-ray via HBO Select, and here are all the details:
Beginning yesterday and ending May 17th, the “True Blood” Twitter feed (@TrueBloodHBO) is hosting the “Psalms of Lilith” contest. Each day fans will be asked to fill in the missing words from a Psalm of Lilith (#fillintheblood), and the top ten submissions for each Psalm will win an autographed copy of the release. All of the winners will be announced the day after their tweet. The official micro-site for the contest is FillInTheBlood.com.
At 12:00 noon PT/3:00 pm ET on Tuesday, May 21st, (the title’s street date), Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) and Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam De Beaufort) will participate in a virtual signing live from Bill Compton’s mansion on the “True Blood” set, during which they may read the winning tweets, sign DVD copies, and answer submitted questions from fans (which can be submitted by any follower on @TrueBloodHBO). The signing will stream live on a “True Blood” branded Ustream channel (the link will be provided on FillInTheBlood.com). Winners will also receive a copy of their winning tweet on an old-world styled parchment as a keepsake, along with other prizes.
“True Blood” Season 5:
Returning for its fifth season, “True Blood” is HBO’s sexy, scary, wildly entertaining drama series from Oscar® and Emmy® winner Alan Ball (“Six Feet Under”) and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In addition to returning cast favorites – human/faerie waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire suitors Bill Compton and Eric Northman, soul-searching pal Tara, shape-shifting boss Sam, rakish brother Jason, clairvoyant Lafayette, and teen-vamp Jessica – Season 5 introduces a whole new wave of otherworldly characters. There’s Vampire Guardian Roman, president of the Vampire Authority, who wants co-existence between humans and vampires; vampire zealot Salome (yes, the Salome), intent on recreating the world in God’s vampyric image; Authority Chancellor Nora, who shares the same maker as Eric; werewolves J.D. and Martha, who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and many more. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery, and humor, “True Blood” Season 5 goes deep into the battle between the Vampire Authority and “vampire fundamentalists” – a political power play whose outcome could decide the fate not only of Sookie and her Bon Temps friends, but of all human existence.
