Dracula on Netflix and BBC

Interesting way to do the episodes, sounds promising.


Netflix, BBC Teaming on 'Dracula' Miniseries From 'Sherlock' Team
By Alex Ritman, The Hollywood Reporter - Oct. 15, 2018

The world's most famous vampire is getting the miniseries treatment on Netflix and the BBC courtesy of Hartswood Films, the multi-award winning makers of Sherlock.

Dracula, which will consist of three feature-length episodes, has been written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss and inspired by Bram Stoker’s classic novel. It will re-introduce the world to Dracula, the vampire who "made evil sexy."

According to the release, Dracula will begin in Transylvania in 1897, where the blood-drinking Count is drawing up his plans against Victorian London. And be warned: the dead travel fast.

Co-creators, writers and executive producers Moffat and Gatiss said, “There have always been stories about great evil. What’s special about Dracula is that Bram Stoker gave evil its own hero.”

Charlotte Moore, BBC director of content, added: “Genius duo Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss turn their attentions to Dracula for unmissable event television on BBC One."

Piers Wenger, controller of BBC Drama, said: “Steven and Mark’s ingenious vision for Dracula is as clever as it is chilling. 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 and the brilliant team at Hartswood on yet another iconic British series.”

Added Larry Tanz, vp content acquisition at Netflix: “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.”

And Sue Vertue, exec producer at Hartswood Films, said: "We are absolutely thrilled to be back at the BBC, and also delighted that Netflix are coming on board with Dracula. There’s nothing like fresh blood.”

Dracula was commissioned by Moore and Wenger and is written and created by Moffat and Gatiss. Executive producers are Gatiss, Moffat and Vertue for Hartswood Films, Ben Irving for BBC and will be handled by Tanz for Netflix.

The series will premiere on BBC One in the U.K. and on Netflix outside of the U.K., except China, where the service is not available.

BBC Studios Distribution, who brokered the deal with Netflix for Hartswood Films, is the international distributor.

I do want to check this out. I still need to go back and watch Jekyll. I never got around to that, but always meant to.

Dracula’: BBC One Sets Premiere Date For Gruesome Netflix Co-Production


BBC One will premiere its gruesome reworking of Bram Stoker’s Dracula on New Year’s Day.


The Netflix co-production, written by Sherlocks Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, will air on three consecutive nights from January 1, 2020. No word yet on when it will drop globally on Netflix.


The three-part series stars Claes Bang as Count Dracula and is produced by Hartswood Films. Gatiss, Moffat and Sue Vertue executive produce for Hartswood, Ben Irving for the BBC, and it will be handled by Larry Tanz and Carolyn Newman for Netflix.


BBC One also revealed that its adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol will debut on December 22 — three days after FX’s December 19 premiere. The remake stars Guy Pearce as Ebenezer Scrooge and is produced by Ridley Scott’s Scott Free, Tom Hardy’s Hardy Son & Baker and FX Productions.
