Company Description

Three vampires have settled in the quaint and bizarre beach community of Lost Cove. Phaedra, a brash starlet, plays a vampire on the local television as the horror host, Phaedra: Countess of the Surf. Tuesday, an aloof wallflower, is burdened by her past and navigating a new relationship she's unsure of. Katrina, an eccentric sage of sorts, is the solid rock of wisdom and support. Although secure from the exterior forces that plague their kind, they're met with internal conflicts of grief, love, redemption, and coming to terms with the past.

As Samhain—their old-world celebration of Halloween—draws near, the rift between Lost Cove and the spirit world thins. With this comes figures from beyond the veil, bringing back memories of past lives, not all of which are fondly remembered. For these local haunts, immortality is no cake walk.
