‘Dracula’ To Get The ‘Sherlock’ Treatment With New BBC Series

The team behind the BBC hit series “Sherlock” is reuniting to create a new take on Bram Stoker’s Dracula.  According to Variety, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat will write the series, and Sue Hartswood Films will produce.

Work on the series has not started, but talks have already begun with BBC.  With no script and no cast, little is known at this time about the show, however, Variety reports that “Dracula” will adopt the same format as “Sherlock,” with a miniseries run of feature-length episodes.  It is not yet clear whether “Dracula” will be modernized the way “Sherlock” was or if it will take place in its historic setting.  Stoker’s 1897 novel tells the story of how the titular count attempts to move from Transylvania to England in his search for new blood.
