True Blood actor Michael McMillian will write a series titled Lucid for Archaia Studios Press.

McMillian, who plays the vampire-hating Reverend Steve Newlin in the HBO series, brokered the deal to write for Archaia through his friend and fellow actor Zachary Quinto.

Best known as Spock in 2009’s Star Trek movie and the villainous Sylar in Heroes, Quinto made an agreement to develop comic series with Archaia in partnership with his company Before the Door Pictures, one of which will be Lucid.

“I’m a huge fan of action and high adventure and fantasy,” McMillian told Newsarama. “I grew up on Indiana Jones, H G Wells and James Bond… and I’ve also been, in the past few years, really fascinated with counter-culture, and the history of magic.

“Lucid sort of springs out of the love of those worlds, and it takes place in an alternate universe where major world powers have black ops agents working for them that are trained in the mystic arts, sorcery and magic.

“So it’s kind of like this world where James Bond has been matched up with Harry Potter, and magicians are working in the interest of national security.”

Lucid will debut in summer 2010.
