[TV] NBC Developing “The WolfMan” For Television

The Wolfman (remake) - 29

What do you guys think of “Dracula”? How about “Sleepy Hollow”? I stopped watching both, which is why I hesitate caring about NBC’s forthcoming “The WolfMan” (that title is not a typo) series.

Deadline reports that NBC is developing a contender for it Friday supernatural block anchored by “Grimm,” which is currently paired with “Dracula.”

It hails from “Dracula” executive producer/head writer Daniel Knauf and is based on Universal Pictures’ Scott Stuber-produced 2010 feature The Wolfman starring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins, which in turn was a remake of the 1941 movie. “The WolfMan” is one of two projects Knauf has at NBC, along with a supernatural telenovela produced by Electus that is part of the company’s 3-for-1 telenovela deal at NBC, intended to result in a 13-episode order.

“The WolfMan” is described as “a supernatural thriller that explores what it means to be a man and to be human. It centers on Lawrence Talbot, who is afflicted by an ancient curse and jacks into the powerful, primordial soul of the alpha-predator.

Knauf is writing and executive producing with Stuber and Quan Phung.

    yessssssssssssssssssssss i was thinking about this last week. another werewolf show is needed. teen wolf can’t be the only werewolf show that is on the air. i hope the tone is the same as dracula and they get the right cast as well. then have a cross over episode

      Bitten is coming out, and there’s going to be another season of hemlock grove. This Wolfman show is the only one that interests me but it’s safe to say there’s going to be more than one werewolf show on TV.

        sorry but bitten and that hemlock one . those aren’t werewolves . those are shapeshifters . a werewolf to me is a man / wolf hybrid. teen wolf. those are werewolves. bitten, hemlock, true blood, twilight, and any other movie where the person turns into a normal looking dog. is not and will never be a werewolf in my eyes. sorry. the wolf man, teen wolf movie and show, my moms a werewolf, the howling, cursed, big bad wolf. those are what i called werewolf

          I don’t like that stuff either I’m just pointing out they are there. More sexy/shitty werewolves shows means a good one is bound to show up. There is no way in hell were going to get our werewolf dream show without this stuff happening first. You and me may not like them but if you check out old werewolf stories both versions are just as much a werewolf as the other.

          I’m with you, just know that no network in their right mind is going to pick up a hardcore werewolf show if their not proven to be profitable.

    I hope it turns out better than Dracula. Had high hopes for that show but its a disappointment so far

    Dracula was/is a mess, too bad…I dig Sleepy Hollow though, alot of fun, interesting take on the legend.

  • MachetAY

    These shows are really REALLY lame. I’m a little bit older so Christopher Lee has always been Dracula to me… even over Bela. So to see the little twat they have playing Dracula on NBC sickens my soul.

      Totally agree, even posted the same myself here somewhere.

    Kudos to NBC for pulling out all the horror stops; keep them coming!

    I am not afraid to admit that I love “Dracula”. Dracula, Hannibal, Sleepy Hollow, Bate’s Motel, American Horror Story… Good times !
