In addition to “Interview With the Vampire,” AMC will also soon be serving up a small screen take on Anne Rice‘s “Mayfair Witches,” and more casting has been announced today.

Deadline reports that Annabeth Gish (The Fall of the House of Usher; Midnight Mass) has joined the cast as Diedre, alongside the previously announced Alexandra Daddario.

Tongayi Chirisa (Palm Springs, Antebellum), Beth Grant (Rain Man, No Country for Old Men), Erica Gimpel (God Friended Me), and Jen Richards (Her Story) have also signed on.

Esta Spalding (“Masters of Sex,” “On Becoming a God in Central Florida”) and Michelle Ashford (“Masters of Sex,” “The Pacific,” “John Adams”) are both executive producers and writers of the series. Spalding, who has an overall deal with AMC Studios, will serve as showrunner.

“The series will focus on an intuitive young neurosurgeon who discovers that she is the unlikely heir to a family of witches. As she grapples with her newfound powers, she must contend with a sinister presence that has haunted her family for generations.”

Eight episodes of “Mayfair Witches” will premiere later this year.

The Anne Rice catalog AMC acquired last year includes The Vampire Chronicles Series: “Interview with the Vampire,” “The Vampire Lestat,” “The Queen of the Damned,” “The Tale of the Body Thief,” “Memnoch The Devil,” “The Vampire Armand,” “Pandora,” “Vittorio the Vampire,” “Blood and Gold,” “Prince Lestat,” “Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis,” and “Blood Communion: A Tale of Prince Lestat;” The Lives Of The Mayfair Witches Series: “The Witching Hour,” “Lasher,” “Taltos;” and The Vampire Chronicles/The Lives Of The Mayfair Witches- Crossover Novels: “Merrick,” “Blackwood Farm” and “Blood Canticle.”
