'Dracula' show from 'Sherlock' duo coming to Netflix and BBC
October 15, 20181 min read
Former Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has his next project lined up—reteaming with Sherlock co-creator (and Mycroft Holmes performer) Mark Gatiss, the duo will be developing their own take on Dracula to air on BBC in the United Kingdom and Netflix everywhere else in a co-production between the two companies.
Variety reported on the project over a year ago, but the series has officially been greenlit by the networks as of today. Rather than a modern take like Sherlock or Moffat's previous miniseries Jekyll, this new Dracula show will be set in 1897, revolving around the titular vampire character in Victorian London. Like Sherlock, episodes will be 90-minutes long, with an initial order of three episodes.
