After giving us our first look at Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Bram Stoker's legendary creation, NBC and Sky Living have now released a trailer for the upcoming Gothic romance Dracula; watch the trailer after the official synopsis for the 10-part series...
"Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) stars in this provocative new drama as one of the world’s most iconic characters. It’s the late 19th century and the mysterious Dracula (Rhys Meyers) has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society.

The networks are revealing their upcoming schedules this week and with it comes first looks at their new shows. One of the shows I am most looking forward to this fall is NBC's telling of Dracula. Starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the titular vampire, NBC's version looks opulent and cinematic, the kind of show that would be more at home on HBO than a broadcast network. That could be because the head of NBC, Bob Greenblatt - who ordered Dracula straight to series without the traditional "let's start with a pilot" step - came from Showtime. With Dracula and Hannibal and midseason's pirate show Crossbones, maybe he is trying to bring a pay-cable aesthetic to a broadcast network.
Anyway, check out the official trailer and synopsis below. Dracula premieres this fall on Fridays at 10pm, following Grimm (which returns to its original 9pm slot).

Over the weekend, NBC picked up the Dracula series. Along with all of its other forthcoming pilots, a trailer for the series has aired, along with some images from the series, giving us our first look at the revamped character, with Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the leading role.
It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night – useful for someone who avoids the sun.

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the first announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on NBC.
The Peacock did not have a good year. Only one of its new shows, "Revolution," was a true hit. Another, "Chicago Fire," got renewed by the skin of its teeth whilst the fate of a third, "Hannibal," remains uncertain.
None of last year's new comedies survived, neither did two mid-season dramas, which leaves the network with some big holes to fill. Three dramas and three comedies will debut in the Fall ahead of three more dramas and two comedies mid-season. Two further dramas and a comedy are presently unscheduled.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't become series including the high-profile Charlize Theron-produced drama about the Hatfields and McCoys, the Bruckheimer-produced »

Take a look at a complete preview of the shows coming your way, and mark your calendars. It looks good for NBC this year, and while I’m not sure all of these look like winners, I think you’ll find at least a couple that you’re really going to like.

For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.”
Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: he will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, »

In a move that will make a lot of "Grimm" fans happy, for the 2013-14 season NBC will be returning the show to Friday nights and pairing it with new series "Dracula." Unfortunately, the fate of "Hannibal" is still up in the air.
Below you'll find more details along with key art, a few photos, and the official synopsis and trailer for "Dracula."
Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment, said, "On Fridays, anchored by ‘Grimm’ at 9 p.m., we will have a more fun genre night with the limited-series ‘Dracula,’ starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers at 10 p.m. In the spring, ‘Crossbones’ — with John Malkovich as the infamous pirate Blackbeard — replaces ‘Dracula.’"
"Revolution" is moving to Wednesday nights, and after football and the Olympics are over, NBC will be launching "Believe" from J.J. Abrams (Sunday at 9 p.m.), which tells the story of an unlikely relationship that develops between a young girl »

We previously reported on casting news for NBC’s Dracula TV series, which stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers in a new take on the classic vampire story. NBC has officially announced that the show will be part of their fall lineup and released a 2-minute trailer for the series:

NBC and Sky Living are set to deliver a new take on Bram Stoker's iconic horror tale as Dracula returns to the screen for a 10-part TV series from comic book writer Cole Haddon (The Strange Case of Mr. Hyde) and showrunner Dan Knauf (Carnivale), and Entertainment Weekly has delivered three first look images featuring Golden Globe-winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Elvis, The Tudors) as the nefarious Count:
The series is described as "a provocative new re-telling" of Stoker's novel, with Dracula posing as an American entrepreneur claiming he wants to bring modern science to Victorian London, when in reality his plan is to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is joined in the cast of Dracula by Jessica De Gouw (Arrow), Katie McGrath (Merlin) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Mr Selfridge), and the show is set to begin airing later this year. »

Chicago – When you’re in as much of a ratings struggle as NBC, it makes sense to shake things up and that’s exactly what they’re doing in the Fall with a new show or an old show in a new time every single night of the week. “Chicago Fire,” “Revolution,” “The Biggest Loser,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Parenthood” are moving. “Community” is being held until a midseason, 13-episode run. No decision yet made on “Celebrity Apprentice” or “Hannibal,” which isn’t that surprising as they are mid-season shows anyway although it shouldn’t give fans of either program confidence as NBC announced a midseason schedule as well and they’re not on it. Anything could still happen with either program however and they could be held as replacements for shows that fail. That may be the best shot for “Hannibal” fans now. The best new show on the »

Over six months ago it was announced that Jonathan Rhys-Meyers (The Tudors, Mission: Impossible III) was set to lead Dracula, a 10-episode series set up at NBC that would put a new spin on the classic Bram Stoker tale.
Now two more cast members have joined the series, including the iconic vampire’s arch nemeses. Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong, Wanted) has been cast as the vampire hunter Van Helsing and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Raven, Going the Distance) has been cast as Jonathan Harker.
This is a project that skipped the pilot stage and just got a straight-up series order, but it’s hard to tell whether it’s looking past a single season or will act more as an extended miniseries. The shorter season seems to behoove both the networks and creators as they get a chance to tell their story without ...

Thomas Kretschmann will be switching cloaks for Dracula. He’s played the Count himself, in Dario Argento’s Dracula 3D, but now will play the opposite side of the coin: Van Helsing! Kretschmann should be familiar to many, as he’s had a varied film and TV career, with roles in U-571, Blade II, The Pianist, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, The River, King Kong, and a ton more.
Abraham Van Helsing is described as “…not the classic hero featured in so many retellings. Here, he’s a brilliant professor with a cool exterior who is obsessed with revenge and makes him more of a threat to the public than to Dracula.“

Last week we announced the casting of what you could say was all those sympathetic to Jonathan Rhys Meyers‘ role as Dracula in NBC’s new series. Today we have news of a couple of those in opposition. First is the famous vampire hunter himself, Van Helsing, as played by Thomas Kretschmann (Wanted), and secondly Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Mr. Selfridge) has been cast as Mina Murray’s fiance Jonathan Harker.
They join a cast of lovely ladies including Victoria Smurfit as Lady Jayne, Jessica De Gouw as Mina Murray and Katie McGrath who plays Lucy Westenra. Dracula’s (Meyers) right hand man is R.M. Renfield played by Nonso Anozie.
It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises »

The "Wanted" alum will play opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers' titular character. THR reports that in NBC's take on the Dracula legend, Kretschmann's Abraham Van Helsing is a professor whose secret obsession with power could pose a danger not only to Dracula, but to Londoners at large.
NBC's upcoming series is set in London, where Dracula is pretending to be American entrepreneur Alan Grayson and secretly hopes to get revenge on those who ruined his life centuries earlier. When he sees Mina Murray (Jessica De Gouw), who appears to be the reincarnation of his dead wife, he falls for her and things could change.

Thomas Kretschmann, who plays Dracula in Dario Argento's Dracula 3D , is going to star as Abraham Van Helsing in NBC's upcoming Dracula series. The show is set in the late-1800s and, according to The Hollywood Reporter , Van Helsing "is not the classic hero featured in so many retellings.

Oliver Jackson-Cohen will plays a journalist in the series, premiering this fall. The two join Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Jessica De Gouw. Meyers plays Dracula, who arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society.
