Original can of “New Blood” used in the production of the hit vampire Showtime show True Blood. Small-town Louisiana waitress Sookie Stackhouse already is viewed as an oddball by her friends and neighbours, since she can read the minds of those around her. She doesn’t exactly help her reputation, though, when she falls for Bill Compton, a 173-year-old vampire who has `come out of the coffin’ along with many of his undead comrades now that a new synthetic blood has made it possible for vampires to survive without preying on humans. Still, the conservative locals aren’t wild about mortal-vampire liaisons, especially Sookie’s boss, Sam Merlotte, who carries a torch for her. `Six Feet Under’ creator Alan Ball is behind this series adaptation of best-selling novels by Charlaine Harris.
Featured in the finale of the series, this can of New Blood is part of a new marketing from Eric and Pam and was featured in the shows epilogue sequence. The can is made off metal with an unopened pop top and has been filled by the production with a hard substance allowing the can to keep its shape permanently. The can has a production made graphic on the outside that is metallic, and features the New Blood logo with the tag line “From Vampires, For Vampires” and the lettering “100% Pure Synthetic”. This piece shows slight wear from use in the show, measures 8″ tall, and remains in excellent, production used condition.
