Showrunner Felicia D. Henderson Discusses ‘First Kill’ and the Power of Love

Felicia D. Henderson serves as the showrunner, writer, and executive producer of the new supernatural series, First Kill. All eight episodes of season 1 are now streaming on Netflix.


When it’s time for teenage vampire Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook) to make her first kill so she can take her place among a powerful vampire family, she sets her sights on a new girl in town named Calliope (Imani Lewis). But much to Juliette’s surprise, Calliope is a vampire hunter from a family of celebrated slayers. Both find that the other won’t be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.

Some of Henderson’s notable credits include The Quad, The Punisher, and Empire.


We discussed the importance of three-dimensional characters, why everyone can find something to relate to when watching this series, the theme of love, and much more!
