The Vampire Diaries is NOT Twilight, Producer Says

by at .  Updated at .

All week long, we've been pitting The Vampire Diaries against the Twilight Saga in a round of analytical comparisons.

Now, producer Kevin Williamson - who created Dawson's Creek and wrote the movie Scream - is speaking out about the upcoming CW series. He wants potential viewers to know that it's anything but a Twilight rip-off.

"It's not just about vampires, its about all sorts of things that go bump in the night, Williamson told MTV. "I kept reading [the books] and I realized, this isn't Twilight at all, this is actually where a girl falls in love with a vampire, but that's where [the comparison] ends. It's like a modern-day sexy Dark Shadows and that was appealing."

The Vampire Diaries premieres on September 10 on The CW. We'll tune in for it. Will you?
