[TV] 2-Minute Promo For NBC’s “Dracula”!

NBC’s upcoming “Dracula” has unveiled a 2-minute promo featuring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the titular character.

The series, which bypassed the traditional pilot stage, takes place in the 1890s and finds Dracula (“The Tudors’” Jonathan Rhys Meyers) living a double life in London as an American businessman interested in bringing modern science to Victorian society. But his true plan — to exact revenge on those who burdened him centuries ago — is derailed when he falls in love with Mina (“Arrow”‘s Jessica DeGouw), who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife. Van Helsing (Thomas Kretschmann) is a brilliant professor obsessed with revenge and power. He may be a greater threat to the public than the titular count. Katie McGrath and Nonso Anozie also star.

“Dracula,” a co-production from British Sky Broadcasting, Carnival Films & Television, Flame Ventures and NBCUniversal, hails from Tony Krantz (“24,” “Sports Night”) and former HBO Films president Colin Callender and writer-creator Cole Haddon (who will co-exec produce).

NBC plans to air Dracula in the fall of 2013.

    Looks like a mixture of the novel and Bram Stoker’s Dracula – can’t wait to see this!

    Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a dime piece. Will be watching this show even if it sucks just because he is in it. That is all.

    this is on NBC. don’t get too comfortable watching this. it won’t last more than one season (if that). there’s STILL no word on if HANNIBAL has been given a 2nd season. if it doesn’t (it’s an amazing show!) i’m done with NBC/ABC forever. i’m sick and done with them fucking the audiences over by canceling good shows.

    This looks incredible. It has a great pedigree too (created by Downton Abbey and The Tudors producers and director respectively).
