Actress Candace Cameron Bure has landed a leading role in a new TV movie series based on “True Blood” author Charlaine Harris’ “Aurora Teagarden” mystery books.

The former “Full House” star will play librarian and amateur crime detective Aurora ‘Roe’ Teagarden in the small screen adaptations, which will be developed for the Hallmark channel.

Harris’ Teagarden series spawned eight novels, beginning with 1990’s “Real Murders,” although it is not yet clear how many TV films will be produced, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The writer’s other big franchise, “True Blood,” was adapted for TV in 2008. The vampire drama will wrap for good after its current seventh and final series.
