More Details About Steven Moffat And Mark Gatiss' Dracula Miniseries

UNIVERSAL

Bram Stoker's Dracula is coming to the small screen courtesy of Netflix and the BBC.

Whether the story (given the title character's famously long-lived existence) spans a longer time period, remains to be seen, but Moffat and Gatiss describe the show via a press release picked up by The Hollywood Reporter: "There have always been stories about great evil".

Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss along are working on a new TV adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, which will air on the BBC in the United Kingdom and Netflix in the U.S. Instead, the series will take place in 1897 and revolve around the count's move from Transylvania to Victorian London.

There have certainly been plenty of Dracula stories and adaptations over the years, both in film and on television, as well as countless iterations that have referenced or put a new spin on Stoker's classic. "We are thrilled to be collaborating with them and the brilliant team at Hartswood on yet another iconic British series", said Piers Wenger, controller of BBC Drama.

Vertue added, "There's nothing like fresh blood".

Sanath Jayasuriya charged under ICC anti-corruption code
Last year, the Jayasuriya-led selection panel resigned en masse following protests over Sri Lanka's slump in form. Jayasuriya has 14 days starting October 15 to respond to the charges.

"We can't wait to bring Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss' brilliant storytelling to our members around the world and we are eager to collaborate on yet another series with the BBC". Gatiss has previously talked about his love of classic horror films and the 1958 version of "Dracula", starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. Other than that, though, it's mostly one-off attempts, like the "Buffy vs. Dracula" episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Dr. Acula on Scrubs.

It is the latest BBC-Netflix project.

Dracula will be executive produced by Gatiss, Moffat, Sue Vertue and Ben Irving.

"Dracula" is a co-production of BBC One and Netflix. Netflix will handle distribution of Dracula to most territories beyond England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
