Shows include “Bones” featuring Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan, forensic anthropologist and title character in Fox’s hit forensics mystery show, starring Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz. Based on the works of real-life forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, the fourth season of “Bones” premiered this week with a two hour special in London.

HBO’s newest series “True Blood”, based on Charlaine Harris’s bestselling Sookie Stackhouse southern vampire series, launches this month and is available in eBooks at great prices. The show stars Anna Paquin as Sookie Stackhouse, a supernaturally gifted Southern cocktail waitress who has a crush on Bill Compton, the mysterious vampire down the street, played by Stephen Moyer. From Dead to Worse, the latest in the series, rode BooksOnBoard’s eBooks bestseller list for two months.

“Many of these shows are based on eBooks that have topped our bestseller lists,” says BooksOnBoard CEO Bob LiVolsi. “When you get caught up in a series, you always want more. eBooks are a great way to satisfy that appetite.”

More shows based on eBooks and Audio Books include Surviving the Filthy Rich, based on the bestselling How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls by Zoey Dean, which will air on the CW, the network that popularized the Gossip Girls series. The Gossip Girl season began September 1; the show is based on the eBook series by Cecily Von Ziegesar. Inseparable, based on the classic The Strange Tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, stars Toby Stephens as a partially paralyzed forensic psychiatrist whose alter ego is a charismatic criminal. Crusoe is based on Daniel Defoe’s classic novel Robinson Crusoe.

Movies coming out this fall include Twilight, based on the first novel in Stephenie Meyer’s phenomenally popular Twilight vampire fantasy series. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a story of a man who is born old and gets younger over time (played by Brad Pitt), is based on the story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Oscar buzz surrounds the movie adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Road, about a father and son surviving in post-apocalyptic America, starring Viggo Mortensten. The Secret Life of Bees, starring Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Hudson, Queen Latifah, Paul Bettany and Alicia Keys, is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Sue Monk Kidd.

“The Twilight movie is sure to excite fans of all sizes,” says BooksOnBoard Director of Operations Nathan Johnson. “Fan have been clamoring for more Stephenie Meyers since the release of Breaking Dawn, her latest bestselling novel. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are the glamorous new faces of vampire romance.”
