The CW Buys Rights to Cult Drama ‘Moonlight’ That Ran on CBS

May 7, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Apparently television executives hope vampires will be hot in reruns, too. The CW is acquiring the rights to broadcast "Moonlight," which aired on CBS a few years ago, Deadline.com reports.

"Moonlight" was produced for CBS by Warner Bros. TV. The CW is co-owned by CBS and Warner Bros. The lead character in "Moonlight" is a private investigator who is also a vampire.

The network will pair the reruns with repeats of its own "Vampire Diaries" starting June 3. It may be a smart move, given that the premieres of two other much anticipated vampire-centered entertainment are scheduled next month: the third season of HBO’s "True Blood" and the film "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."
