Hollywood Vampire is a comedic web show created by award winners Tom Cavanaugh (writer), Matt Ritchey (director), Bob Telford (director) and Allyson Sereboff under the production banner of their group, 8Aprons.
A ‘twenty-something’ vampire is kicked out of his homeland. With no place to turn, he and his sidekick/Butler, Gilroy, trek to Hollywood to find the internet model/actress, dream girl who he’s he’s fallen madly in love with in Los Angeles. Their first encounter is classic Hollywood… just a stranger trying to hit on a model… but Hannah Beth soon discovers that Vlad is NOT just another bloodsucking schmoe in the Hollywood dating scene!
