Sky has released a short new teaser for Sky Living’s upcoming Dracula drama, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) as Dracula.
Based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel, the ten-part series is a co-production between Sky Living and NBC Universal.
The cast also includes Merlin star Katie McGrath as Lucy Westenra, “aristocratic London’s sexy, social butterfly who has a penchant for gossip, flirting and all things glamorous”, alongside Arrow’s Jessica De Gouw, Thomas Kretschmann (Wanted) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Mr. Selfridge).
Dracula launches in the US in October and will begin in the UK on Sky Living this autumn.
Watch the teaser trailer…
The show re-introduces Dracula as he 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. There’s only one circumstance that can potentially thwart his plan – he’s fallen hopelessly in love with a woman who appears to be the reincarnation of his dead wife.
