NBC Orders 10 Episodes Of Vampire Drama ‘Dracula’ With ‘The Tudors’ Star Jonathan Rhys Meyers
  |  @   |  

With The Twilight Saga set to finally end come this fall’s release of Breaking Dawn, there will be a vampire void in need of filling. There always seems to be a couple of vampire-related movies in various stages of production, but with True Blood and The Vampire Diaries still finding success on TV, it’s been decided that it’s time for more creatures of the night on the Small Screen.

In a press release sent out it has been announced that NBC has ordered 10 episodes of Dracula, a new drama series that will star Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the iconic vampire character.

The show will focus on Dracula in London as he poses as an American entrepreneur who claims to want to bring modern-day science to Victorian society, when in fact he’s really out for revenge on those who ruined his life many centuries earlier. His malicious plan runs into complications, however, when he meets a woman he believes to be a reincarnation of his dead wife and falls deeply in love with her.

The show is a co-production between Universal Television, Flame Ventures, Playground, Sky Living, and Carnival Films & Television, the producers behind the award-winning series, Downton Abbey.

Production is set to begin at some point later this year, with no premiere date yet known.

Are you excited for even more vampire action?

  1. #1: I hope they’re doing this for the right reasons, not just to “fill the void”. I think there are enough of those shows out there, thank you.

    #2: I also hope they’ll make it more about humans than vampires. “The Walking Dead” and “Falling Skies” are two PRIME examples.

    So, here’s hoping:-D
