LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Two new U.S. TV dramas tell stories of seemingly ordinary people with secret, dark alter egos -- one a vampire attorney, the other a centuries-old detective.

"Amy After Dark," which came from 20th Century Fox TV, focuses on a New York attorney who realizes she is literally a blood-sucking vampire. The series is being written by John Scott Shepherd and produced by Todd Holland, Daily Variety reported.

Shepherd's background includes writing for ABC's drama, "The Days," as well as features "Joe Somebody" and "Life or Something Like It."

Holland won two directing Emmys for "Malcolm in the Middle" and one for "The Larry Sanders Show."

The other show, yet-untitled, is being scripted by Christian Taylor from a story conceived by Allan Loeb.

Taylor wrote for both "Six Feet Under" and "Miracles." Loeb's credits include crafting the upcoming feature "Things We Lost in the Fire."

Steven Pearl will produce the show, which is still looking for a studio.
