Netflix Stakes Out "Dracula"



The UK's BBC One has commissioned the 3-part mini-series "Dracula" from the co-creators of the multi-award-winning drama "Sherlock", to be produced by Hartswood Films as a co-production between BBC One and Netflix, 'inspired' by author Bram Stoker's public domain novel:


"...in 1897, 'Count Dracula' attempts to move from Transylvania to England so that he may find new blood and spread the undead curse. 


"But there is a battle between Dracula and a small group of men and a woman led by 'Professor Abraham Van Helsing'..."


All "Dracula" episodes will be written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, premiering on Netflix outside of the UK/Ireland.


"Steven and Mark's ingenious vision for 'Dracula' is as clever as it is chilling," said Piers Wenger, BBC Drama. "In their talented hands the fans will experience the power of Bram Stoker's creation as if completely anew. We are thrilled to be collaborating with them..."


"We can’t wait to bring Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss' brilliant storytelling to our members around the world," said Larry Tanz, Vice President, Content Acquisition, Netflix, "and we are eager to collaborate on yet another series with the BBC..."
