NBC has released a slew of information regarding their new limited series Dracula. Check out stills from the first episode, when you can catch the show, and a new show synopsis.
Last night NBC finally revealed more information on their take of the classic Dracula. A new synopsis for the show has been released. Although, it’s very similar to the old one, more noteworthy is that the network is now referring to Dracula as a limited series. It seems their plan is to make Friday night’s dedicated to the supernatural. Grimm is going to be moved back to it’s Friday at 9 p.m. time slot, and Dracula will follow at 10 p.m.
NBC is also giving fans their first look at the episode through key art and a few stills from the first episode. All featuring star Jonathan Rhys Meyer, and one in which he is joined by co-star, Victoria Smurfit.

Dracula show synopsis:
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. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night — useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: He hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife. Victoria Smurfit (“About a Boy”), Thomas Kretschmann (“King Kong”), Jessica De Gouw (“Arrow”), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (“Mr. Selfridge”), Nonso Anozie (“Game of Thrones”) and Katie McGrath (“Merlin”) also star.
Writer Daniel Knauf (“Carnival”), Tony Krantz, (“24,” “Sports Night”), Colin Callender and Gareth Neame (“Downton Abbey”) serve as executive producers. “Dracula” is a production of Flame Ventures, Sky Living, Playground Entertainment, Universal Television, NBCUniversal International Television Production and Carnival Film & Television.
Dracula will officially air Fridays on NBC (10-11 p.m. EST), beginning in Fall 2013.
