Question: After recently finishing both Dexter Season 2 on DVD and the first book in Jeff Lindsay's morbidly entertaining series on which the show is based, a question occurred to me. I am wondering whether the teams who run a show like Dexter, HBO's new True Blood, and others find it easier or harder to do their job in creating a show when it is based upon a book series. On one hand, they already have plenty of plot points to use and the characters are practically drawn out for them already. Most of Dexter's first season, for example, is almost directly taken from the first book. They even use some of the dialogue from the novel almost word for word. While this seems to make things a bit easier for show runners to hit the ground running, they also have to make sure they please an author's fan base with their interpretation. Plus when a show gets past the first season, they face the daunting task of deciding whether to continue following the novels or to create their own mythology like Dexter did (to perfection) in the second season. I guess my question to you as someone who occasionally speaks to the teams who run these shows is do they find this a hindrance on their creativity or a great aid in creating the show? Also, do you think they feel pressure to include major plot points that come up in the novels even if they have decided on a separate storyline from what the author went with in their book series (i.e someone dying or a couple getting together)?

This past Friday, Dexter executive producer Clyde Phillips and series star Michael C. Hall ("Dexter Morgan") spoke to the press at the Television Critics Association press tour. The two discussed their ongoing portrayal of the oddly endearing serial killer, and hinted at what's to come in Season 3, debuting this fall. Dexter's sister Deb has gone through quote an emotional roller coaster on the series and Phillips revealed that, "One of [Deb's] goals this year is to get her detective shield, and she will have to learn that there's a gray area between the black and white that she believes in police work. She's still, we find, psychologically looking for the approval of her father because she never really had it because young Dexter took up all of his time. Also this year, I can tell you that she will finally enter into a healthy, loving relationship, but I can't tell you with whom, and hopefully it will be a surprise." Dexter: Season 3 premieres September 28th on Showtime. Article/Source:
