You say with “True Blood,” “The Vampire Diairies,” “My Babysitter’s A Vampire,” and “Being Human” on the air, you’re still not getting enough vampires?
NBC has just ordered 10 episodes of “Dracula.” The pilot script is by Cole Haddon, the writer of the “Strange Case of Mr. Hyde” graphic novel.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) will play the titular bloodsucker.
From NBC's press release:
"The 10-episode series introduces Dracula as he arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality, he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier. There's only one circumstance that can potentially thwart his plan: Dracula falls hopelessly in love with a woman who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife."
