Banshee - From the Creator of True Blood

So, we've all seen the great news that is True Blood's renewal for a fifth season, but Alan Ball, creator and overlord isn't stopping there. Not content with writing about funeral homes (Six Feet Under) and Vampire's dating the X-Men (True Blood) we can expect to see Banshee, a show about a past convict who somehow wangles his way to assuming the identity of the murdered Sheriff of Banshee, Pennsylvania. Amish Country! Did I mention the new sheriff is a martial-arts expert?

What can we expect to see happen, in Banshee? The new, fake, sheriff will be imposing his own brand of justice on outlaws (and more?) whilst working plans to benefit himself, one way or another. You can read more about the show at the LA Times.

As the show hasn't been cast, started filming or indeed anything even close to it yet (it's only been announced this week), here's another picture of Sookie Stackhouse instead:
