Dracula (TV series)
Dracula is a forthcoming British-American limited series, television drama that is expected to air on Sky Living and NBC produced by London-based shingle Carnival Films. Dracula will premiere on October 25, 2013, and will air on Fridays 10/9c after new episodes of Grimm.

The series was created by Cole Haddon, and is a reimagining of the classic Dracula novel by Bram Stoker. Daniel Knauf, creator of the HBO series Carnivàle, will serve as showrunner/head writer, working with Haddon. Steve Shill directed the pilot.

The network announced the series in January 2012 with a straight-to-series commitment, and the series was later green-lit for 10 episodes in July 2012. Production of the series started in February 2013 in Budapest.

Premise
Dracula comes to London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to the Victorian society. In reality, Dracula seeks revenge on those who betrayed him centuries earlier. As Dracula's plans move toward fruition, he falls hopelessly in love with a woman who may be a reincarnation of his deceased wife

Interesting...maybe worth catching. The show is riding out the whole fairy tale/ vampire drama trend. With Daniel Knauf as the head write it should be good, I was a fan of Carnivale. Jonathan Rhys Meyers always does a fanstastic job so he should make a good Dracula. Those promo posters are a little cheesy,

Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Dracula is the sort of thing my dreams would have been made of... about ten years ago. So this better not turn into a modern-day nightmare, where he's not on form.

Here are a few episode stills from the Pilot. They are a bunch more, but I didn't want to post them because of spoilers.

^ thanks for sharing those! I'm very excited for this show. There seems to be a huge wave of vampire/witch shows coming this fall. But hopefully this one is a stand out, others look very cheesy. I have been watching the Tudors & have finally grown an appreciation for Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Just curious, what are your thoughts on The Tudors?

(It's my absolute #1 favourite TV series and when I heard JRM was going to be Dracula it was a natural conclusion for me that I would watch it. Also, I love Katie McGrath as I followed the first few seasons of Merlin.)
