The last Twilight movie will be released soon and only one episode remains in the fourth season of True Blood. But don't think the vampire craze is on the decline -- MTV recently launched Death Valley, which looks like a campy cross between Reno 911! and Zombieland.

How much longer can this dead horse can be beaten? The time to launch a vampy supernatural soap is now, so allow me to introduce my very own supernatural show set in the Valley of the Sun.

The plot:

There have been reports strange things going down in the Phoenix metro area at night. Sheriff Joe thinks it's all nonsense, but assigns our heroine, Emma Stone -- a no nonsense rookie with something to prove -- to investigate.

Over the course of her adventures, Stone will witness the scariest AZ has to offer, encountering feral javelinas, vampires, chupacabras and one gubernatorial mummy.

And of course -- Alice Cooper will show up (as a golfing creature of the night).

No television series is complete without a soundtrack. Luckily, we've got that covered:
