Much like Warners’ Godzilla fun, NBC built their own “Dracula” experience, which features Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the titular character. Evan Dickson took the tour, and was pretty impressed with the 2-minute video featuring the “rebirth” of the infamous vamp. Watch the videos inside, and check out a few pics of the structure. Comic-Con is NUTS.
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.
