[TV] Carnivale Creator Hired As Showrunner For NBC's Dracula Series
Posted by Joseph Lee on 10.09.2012



Deadline reports that Dan Knauf, creator of HBO's Carnivale, has been hired as the showrunner/head writer for NBC's 10-episode series Dracula. He will work with series creator Cole Haddon.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers will play the Count. The series is being produced for both NBC and UK's Sky Living by Tony Krantz's Flame Ventures; Colin Callender's Playground Entertainment; Universal TV; and NBCU International Prods' Carnival Films & Television (Downton Abbey). It's based on an idea by Krantz. The series is set in the 1890s and is described as "Dangerous Liaisons meets The Tudors."

Here's a synopsis: Dracula (Meyers) arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality, he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier but falls hopelessly in love with a woman who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.

Krantz and Callender will executive produce with Knauf, Gareth Neame and Anne Mensah. Haddon and Flame's Reece Pearson co-executive produce.
