NEW YORK, NY, September 28, 2022 – As a companion to its highly anticipated new series Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire, AMC today announced that it is launching the world’s first online boutique open only during vampire hours. Night Market (NightMarketShop.com), which will feature a curated collection of merchandise honoring and in the spirit of the new series, will be open from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. for the entire first season, beginning premiere night, Sunday, October 2.
Curated by AMC Networks’ Content Room, products available in Night Market include an array of limited-edition collaborations, apparel, glassware, all inspired by the lush set design from the show. Items include eternal roses, bedding, sleep masks – and a one-of-its-kind branded coffin from Titan Casket.
“We’re so excited to extend the world of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire with this immersive after-dark online shopping experience,” said Kim Granito, executive vice president of integrated marketing and Content Room for AMC Networks. “Night Market’s curated selection of products and collabs, will surprise and delight humans and immortals alike.”
In addition to the one-of-its-kind Titan Casket (where else would a vampire sleep?), Night Market includes items from BlissyTM, The Million Roses®, Eternal Flame, MAGILL Los Angeles and other specialty manufacturers.
A sensuous, contemporary reinvention of Anne Rice’s revolutionary gothic novel, Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire follows Louis de Pointe du Lac (Jacob Anderson), Lestat de Lioncourt (Sam Reid) and Claudia’s (Bailey Bass) epic story of love, blood, and the perils of immortality, as told to journalist Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian). Chafing at the limitations of life as a black man in 1900s New Orleans, Louis finds it impossible to resist the rakish Lestat’s offer of the ultimate escape: joining him as his vampire companion. But Louis’s intoxicating new powers come with a violent price, and the introduction of Lestat’s newest fledgling, the child vampire Claudia, soon sets them on a decades-long path of revenge and atonement. Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire debuts on AMC Sunday, October 2 at 10 p.m. ET, immediately following The Walking Dead, with the first two episodes available on AMC+ that same night. Subsequent episodes will be available one week early on AMC+.
