Presently, NBC is loving horror. Grimm is currently enjoying a modicum of success on the network. A reboot of The Munsters is on the way. The early days of Hannibal Lecter are going to be explored in a proposed show called…Hannibal. Now, it is developing a show called Dracula which is being described as “Dangerous Liasons meets The Tudors.”
Tony Krantz and Colin Callender are producing the project which is hinged on a “script-to-series” deal. If NBC likes the script, they’ll take it right into a series and eschew the usual “pilot” process.
On scripting duties is Cole Haddon, who will tell a supernatural soap opera set in the 1890s involving the famous bloodsucker.
Krantz produced Mulholland Drive and directed Sublime and Otis. Haddon, meanwhile, is a newcomer who garnered some attention with this script Hyde back in 2010.
