Blood Ties is a Canadian Produced Fantasy/Mystery series based on the Victoria Nelson series of books by Tanya Huff. The series premiered on the US network Lifetime in March 2007 and is slated to begin airing in Canada in August 2007

Synopsis

A year ago, Victoria "Vicki" Nelson was a respected and highly regarded detective with the Toronto Police. Then she was diagnosed with a processive eye disorder that made her unfit for street work. Rather than settle for a desk, she quit the force and became a private investigator. Walking home one night, she witnesses a murder. After being hired by the victim's girlfriend, who believes the police are looking for the wrong type of killer, Vicki finds herself in a world she never knew existed. And now that she knows, there's no turning back. With the help of her former partner (and some time lover) Mike, Goth obsessed college age assistant Coreen and 500 year old vampire (and possible new lover) Henry, Vicki is solving cases unlike anything she could dream of.

Show Producer Paul McConvey issues a letter to all fans about writing in to support the show. (FireFox)

Dear Blood Ties fans

On behalf of all involved in the production we want to thank you for the tremendous support you have given the show. It has, and continues, to mean a lot to us. As we complete production of the 1st 22 eps, it’s time to let Lifetime know how much you like the series, how grateful you are to Lifetime for presenting it, and how much you want them to continue the series with production of new episodes.
It is extremely valuable to broadcasters to receive direct communication from their audience, as it gives them a glimpse of the show's performance not necessarily evident in ratings etc.

Your communication should be made directly to Lifetime, if possible to Susanne Daniels, Head Of Programming, and Andrea Wong, President, or to Audience Relations. Enthusiasm is certainly called for, but please remember to be respectful, as they are valued partners in the series.

Yours truly
Paul McConvey
Producer
