Los Angeles' own Cassandra Peterson will co-write and star in the first movie to be made by NBC's new movie-production unit. Tentatively entitled "Elvira," the name of Peterson's campy vampire character, the film is being described as a "supernatural comedy." Michael Nesmith's Pacific Arts Pictures will distribute the NBC-made movie.
