The creative team behind Sherlock are looking to create another hit series out of an iconic literary character. According to Variety, a new series based on Bram Stoker’s Dracula is being produced for the BBC, with Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat set to write. According to the report, work on the series is yet to begin but the show will adapt the proven formula of Sherlock, with each mini-season consisting of feature length episodes.
This project is in extremely early development, meaning there are no story details available and we have no idea if the show will take place in modern times. Obviously, this isn’t the first attempt to create a new Dracula property but hopefully Moffat and Gatiss can find more success than both Dracula Untold and the recent Dracula (2013) series. Hopefully, with this creative team the BBC will be able to deliver one of the best adaptations of Bram Stoker’s character.
