The horror tale by Bram Stoker is now getting its very own live-action series, and this will be brought in by Netflix and BBC.
UK-BBC had ordered 3 90-minute episodes from the Dracula TV show by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. Outside the U.K., Netflix is set to be the platform that will carry this show. Hartswood Films will produce this show.
Dracula will not take place in the modern era and will happen in the year, 1897 and also revolve around the count’s move to Victorian London from Transylvania.
“There have always been stories about great evil,” Gatiss and Moffat had said.
“What’s special about Dracula is that Bram Stoker gave evil its own hero.”
Vertue had added, “There’s nothing like fresh blood.”
BBC’s director, Charlotte Moore is behind this, and she had said, “Genius duo Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss turn their attention to Dracula for unmissable event television on BBC One.”
Other than the work on Dracula and Sherlock, Moffit has been the executive producer and also the showrunner on Doctor Who for many seasons. Gatiss has been a screenwriter and also an actor and has made appearances on the Sherlock show as the character, Mycroft.
There is no announcement regarding when this show will air, and who will take on the titular role. If Gatiss and Moffit’s work on Sherlock is any kind of indication, then, Dracula will become another huge phenomenon.
