True Blood’s Angela Robinson will be writing a one-hour Madame Xanadu drama series for HBO Max. Robinson signed a multi-year overall deal with Warner Bros back in March. One of the many projects that she is working on for WB is a remake of the 1983 cult classic “The Hunger.”
Not only is Robinson writing the series but she will also be executive producing it alongside J.J. Abrams and Ben Stephenson, with Rachel Rusch Rich co-executive producing.
Madame Xanadu, born Nimue Inwudu, is an immortal sorceress and soothsayer, aiding the magic community from her magic shop. She is the youngest sister of Morgana (to become Morgaine Le Fay) and Vivienne, the Lady of the Lake. The sisters are descendants of the Elder Folk, survivors of Atlantis who evolved into the race known as the Homo magi. The character is identified with Nimue, the sorceress from Arthurian mythology.
