Sherlock Team To Create Dracula Miniseries For Netflix And BBC

Sherlock Team To Create Dracula Miniseries For Netflix And BBC”

"What's special about Dracula is that Bram Stoker gave evil its own hero". The project has been in the works for some time with the news emerging in June 2017. Here's the synopsis: In Transylvania in 1897, the blood drinking Count is drawing his plans against Victorian London. Whether the story (given the title character's famously long-lived existence) spans a longer time period, remains to be seen, but Moffat and Gatiss describe the show via a press release picked up by The Hollywood Reporter: "There have always been stories about great evil". United Kingdom fans can catch the show on BBC One, and for those of us living outside of the United Kingdom, we'll be able to catch the show on Netflix.

Are you excited for a new take on the Dracula tale?

The director of content at BBC, Charlotte Moore, called Gatiss and Moffat a "genius duo" and described the forthcoming Dracula limited series as "unmissable event television".

Wenger said, "Steven and Mark's ingenious vision for Dracula is as clever as it is chilling".

"But obviously, the point of Dracula was that he's the first kind of Byronic vampire. We are thrilled to be collaborating with them and the brilliant team at (producer) Hartswood on yet another iconic British series". Bela Lugosi also went from stage to screen when he starred in the bellwether 1931 Universal Studios. Dracula is certainly a well-loved, literary classic, and with Gatiss and Moffat's creative hand behind this new series, it will certainly bring the vampire to life in exciting ways. The closest attempt was NBC's Dracula series, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, but it only lasted a single season. Moffat previously took on classic horror in 2007, when he wrote the series Jekyll Gatiss even personally played Dracula in a full-cast audio play from Big Finish in 2016. Either way, Benedict Cumberbatch should probably play him.
