NBC makes script-to-series commitment for Dracula

by on Jan.13, 2012, under Television

NBC still sees money in the eyes (or fangs) of vampires. The network has made a script-to-series commitment (meaning they’ll skip a pilot and go straight to a 13-episode series order if they like the script) for a Dracula series from producers Tony Krantz (24) and Colin Callender (Tsunnami: The Aftermath) and writer Cole Haddon (who appears to be a newcomer, but had a script for Hyde on the 2010 “Black List”, the annual Hollywood list of most-liked but unproduced scripts).

Dracula will be a period “soap opera” style set in the 1890s, and described as “Dangerous Liaisons meets The Tudors“, and will be aimed at both the U.S. and International markets via NBCUniversal’s international channels.
