True Blood Musical in the Works!

True Blood, Season 7 HBO

True Blood may be coming to a close, but it may live on in song.

The series' composer, Nathan Barr, says he's developing a musical adaptation of the HBO show.

That's right—True Blood: The Musical!

"We've got a couple of songs already," Barr told me last night in Hollywood at the premiere of T.B.'s seventh—and final—season.

"The story lends itself to a musical," he continued. "The challenge for us is the minute I thought about True Blood: The Musical, I myself could kind of groan. I can see the bad version of that. It's really a matter of finding a way of sort of reinventing it."

But don't go looking for tickets just yet.

"We're pitching it, it's not a guaranteed thing," Barr said. "I have the rights. HBO doesn't have to like it, but hopefully they will and they'll give us the shot to make it and bring it to Broadway.

"We have a year left before we have to present it," he added. "It's still very early, but we're very excited. Fingers crossed!"

Barr has been with the series since the pilot episode. "It's been an amazing ride," he said. "It's really sad to see it end."

Season seven of True Blood kicks off Sunday, June 22, on HBO. (For more from last night's premiere, make sure to check out E! News tonight at 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.)
