Reginald the Vampire, based on the Johnny B. Truant "Fat Vampire" book series, stars Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man's Ned) as Reginald, a fat treadmill salesman who gets turned into a Vampire. Not only did the series just wrap filming this week, but the series be on SYFY this summer. Plus, both Amazon and Hulu have picked up streaming rights for international territories, according to Variety.
I haven't yet read the book series - and based on the description listed on GoodReads, I'm afraid I won't like it - but I'm pleased to see more plus size representation on TV, especially when it's on a channel I tend to enjoy.
Will you be watching Reginald the Vampire on SYFY? Have you read the book series that inspired it? Let me know!
