TNT is developing Blood Will Out, an eight-hour limited series from Sheldon Turner and Jennifer Klein’s Vendetta Productions and TriStar Television. This marks the first limited series project from Sony’s recently relaunched TriStar TV banner to be set up at a network.
Written by Turner and Walter Kirn, Blood Will Out is an adaptation of Kirn’s autobiographical book Blood Will Out: The True Story Of A Murder, A Mystery, And A Masquerade. It chronicles the 15-year friendship between Kirn and German con artist Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, who went by the name Clark Rockefeller. Sheldon, Klein and Kirn executive produce the project, which was taken out last month.
Blood Will Out, which falls under Vendetta’s first-look deal with Sony TV, marks a reunion for Turner and Kirn. Turner was nominated for an Oscar with Jason Reitman for adapting Kirn‘s novel Up In The Air.
