David Knauf‘s Carnivale is quite easily one of my favorite TV series. If you haven’t seen the show, do yourself a favour and catch up on the tragically incomplete show.
Deadline are saying that the very same man has been put onto NBC’s new series of Dracula as showrunnder/head writer with creator Cole Haddon. Jonathan Rhys-Meyer will be playing the title role for the shows 10 episode run.
A brief description of the show says:
Dracula arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality, he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier but falls hopelessly in love with a woman who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.
Flame Ventures and Carnival Films & Television are also producing. The former has a little English show called Downton Abbey on at the moment, so things are looking promising for this version of Dracula. There are quite a few talented parties involved here and I will certainly catch the first episode when it does finally air.
PS: Go watch Carnivale. For reals.
