Imani Lewis lands lead role in Netflix 's YA vampire drama series 'First Kill'



Imani Lewis (The Forty-Year-Old Version, Vampires vs. the Bronx) will star in the Netflix YA vampire series, First Kill. Emma Roberts will be a producer on the series. Sarah Catherine Hook is her co-lead.

The series is based on a short story from Victoria "V.E." Schwab. Schwab will be working with Felicia D. Henderson (Empire, The Punisher), to adapt it and Henderson will be the show runner.

The plot: When it's time for teenage vampire Juliette to make her first kill so she can take her place among a powerful vampire family, she sets her sights on a new girl in town named Calliope. But much to Juliette's surprise, Calliope is a vampire hunter, from a family of celebrated slayers. Both find that the other won't be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.

Imani will play Calliope “Cal” Burns, the “fearless, headstrong monster hunter.”
