Caravan is in production on new history documentary Field of Vampires for US network PBS’s Secrets of the Dead strand.

Abacus Media Rights has secured distribution rights to the rest of world, excluding the US, and has already made pre-sales to A+E Networks EMEA for Sky HISTORY in the UK and The HISTORY Channel in Poland and SVT in Sweden.

With exclusive access to unprecedent archeological discoveries, Field of Vampires (1×60’/2×50’) travels throughout Eastern, Central and Western Europe and the US to understand how the myth of vampires began, unlock the secrets of the extraordinary ritual burials of those suspected of vampiric behaviour, and explore why some dead people were singled out as being vampires. An intense forensic investigation of ancient skeletons in mysterious graveyards, ground-breaking DNA analysis, and pioneering facial reconstruction techniques answer some of these fascinating questions…

Dinah Lord, CEO and executive producer, Caravan comments, “We are thrilled to be producing Field of Vampires for Secrets of the Dead, which will reveal some startling, unexpected answers to mysteries that have remained hidden for hundreds of years.   We’re also looking forward to working with the sales team at Abacus Media Rights who we know will help the documentary reach multiple screens and audiences around the world.”

Jonathan Ford, Managing Director at AMR comments, “Productions that have a truly original take on a successful genre are always of interest to us at AMR.  We know history and archaeological programming really work internationally and we also know the story of vampires continues to intrigue viewers – here we have a fabulous factual series that cleverly combines the two.”

Field of Vampires is produced and directed by Steven Perring. Executive Producer: Dinah Lord. Production Executive: Johann Insanally. Assistant Producer: Samuel Mundell. Stephanie Carter is Executive Producer for Secrets of the Dead
