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.
