The Vampire Diaries may be coming to an end but star Ian Somerhalder’s connection with the network isn’t over. As a producer, he’ll be working alongside his wife, Twilight actress Nikki Reed, whose recently launched Rare Birds Productions will be creating a new show called Transience for the network.
Transience, written by award-winning short filmmaker Thomas Brandon, is set in a world in which consciousness transfers have become legal. An ambitious young musician finally gets the kind of body and life that he wants but the procedure has side effects, sending him down a dark rabbit hole where identity, memory and the past start to violently collide.
Somerhalder and Reed executive produce, Brandon will serve as supervising producer. Tracy Ryerson of Rare Birds will oversee the project.
