I’m not expecting to like it as much as I swoon over the old “Moonlight” series, but I’m willing to give it a try. Trueblood and The Vampire Diaries have not been able to steal my heart from “Moonlight”. Here is what NBC has to say about its new show (not yet scheduled).
The father of all vampires rises in this provocative new drama starring Golden Globe® winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) as one of the world’s most iconic characters.
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 crossed him 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 the producers of the critically acclaimed, Emmy Award®-winning hit “Downton Abbey” comes DRACULA, a twisted, sophisticated and provocative take on Bram Stoker’s classic novel, proving that some stories are truly eternal.
