BBC One and Netflix Teaming Up For New Dracula Series

Last year, it was announced that the team behind the hit BBC series “Sherlock” was in talks to do a new take on Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The team was still in early talks, but Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat were set to write the series, with Sue Hartswood Films producing. Yesterday, Netflix announced that they are now in the mix in co-production with BBC One.

The mini series will be comprised of three, 90 minute episodes written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss and inspired by Bram Stoker’s classic novel. The series will re-introduce the world to Dracula telling the story of 1897 Transylvania where the blood drinking Count is drawing his plans against Victorian London.

“There have always been stories about great evil. What’s special about Dracula, is that Bram Stoker gave evil its own hero,” say co-creators, writers and executive producers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss

Though a premiere date has not yet been announced, the series will premiere on BBC One, with Netflix premiering the series in markets where BBC One is not available.
