Dracula Series to Premiere on NBC

Premiering on NBC Friday, October 25th, is the new gothic drama series, Dracula. It stars Golden Globe winner, Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) and is from the producers of the Emmy Award-winning Downtown Abbey. The synopsis, according to NBC:

It's the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He's especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night - useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan... until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.

From what we see in the trailer, it promises to be a twisted, sophisticated and sexy take on Bram Stoker's classic novel, proving that some stories never die. Dracula is a one-hour drama that airs Fridays on NBC at 10/9c. Visit the website for more info (
