Today NBC released the trailer for their new pilot Dracula which is a recreation of the classic novel Dracula by Bram Stoker.The series reunites the director of the Tudors and the series smoking hot version of Dracula Jonathan Rhys Meyers who played King Henry VIII in the Tudors who have teamed up with the producers of Downtown Abby. The series is about how Dracula/Alexander Grayson poses as an America Entrepreneur who presents himself as a person who wants to bring modern science to Victorian Society. But in truth the vampire wants to seek Revenge on the people who ruined his life creatures ago. I guess if you’re going to pull a Revenge might as well do with class and elegance which what Meyers seems to presenting himself in the trailer. But revenge and a show is not without a love and passionate story, while there Dracula/Alexander Grayson seems to be compelled and drawn toward a women who seems to be the a look alike or doppelgänger reincarnation of his late wife. The series is set to hit the NBC schedule on Fridays at 10pm with 10 episodes pickup. Now its up to the audience if they’re drawn to Jonathan Rhys Meyers classy elegant portrayal of the classic Vampire and did I forget to mention smoking hot..cause these days vampire shows seem to continue to be a hit. With The Vampire Diaries, The Originals (a spin-off of the hit series The Vampire Diaries also hitting this call ) on the CW. And True Blood on HBO which is set to return in the summer this year.
NBCs trailer to Dracula seems to be hitting the fans with excitement whither it was the draw of Johnthan Rhys Meyers and his fellow cast meyers Jessica Murray (Mina), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Jonathan Harker), Katie McGarth (Lucy Westenra), Noso Anozie (R.M. Rendield), Victoria Smurfit (Lady Jane), Thomas (Kretschmann (Abraham Van Helsing) and Michael Nardone (Hermann Kruger). Or if it was the producers of the hit Dowtown Abby and the director of The Tudors, fans of any vampire show, classic fans of the Bram Stoker Novel or people who just love future good TV. NBC’s Dracula trailer seems to be gaining just enough fans to cause a small uproar who cannot wait for the show to air this fall.
