‘Dracula’ Miniseries from ‘Sherlock’ Team Heads to Netflix

Netflix BBC for Dracula miniseries

Netflix BBC for Dracula miniseries

Netflix's vice president of content acquisition, Larry Tanz, hinted that fans around the world will absolutely love Gatiss and Mofatt's Dracula when he stated, "We can't wait to bring Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss' brilliant storytelling to our members around the world and we are eager to collaborate on yet another series with the BBC".

This latest take on Bram Stoker's Transylvanian vampire will premiere on BBC One in the United Kingdom and on Netflix outside of the UK.

While the specific details of Moffat and Gatiss's Dracula reinvention endeavor have not been revealed, they seem to be telegraphing a story about the subjective duality of evil and heroism.

United manager Jose Mourinho is said to have watched the player during the global break and was impressed with his performances for the national team.

Variety has confirmed that a Dracula television series from Sherlock creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat is in the works at BBC and Netflix. But we do know that the show will be broadcast on both BBC One, and Netflix. "We are thrilled to be collaborating with them and the brilliant team at (producer) Hartswood on yet another iconic British series". "There's nothing like fresh blood".

There are no immediate plans for Sherlock to return, but fans who miss the show are in for some very good news.

The 90-minute episodes are written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss and produced by Hartswood Films. However, other attempts, such as the ill-fated Dracula 2000 with Gerard Butler, and Mel Brooks' Dracula: Dead and Loving It, are better left on the ash heap of cinematic history. BBC chief Tony Hall has talked about the threat posed by the streamers and US tech firms to the pubcaster, but they have teamed for shows including "Troy: Fall of a City" and "Duty/Shame". There's no word on casting yet, but Netflix and BBC should find a way to resurrect Leslie Nielsen and let him Dracula again. BBC Studios Distribution brokered the deal with Netflix for Hartswood Films and will handle global distribution outside of Netflix territories.
