Dracula series coming to Starz
A mixed blessing about being on the press list for San Diego was all the press releases I got leading up to the show and during it. While it made my inbox unmanageable for a few days, there were some cool things too like an announcement from Starz about the new show they're developing, Vlad Dracula.
J. Michael Straczynski is working on the series with producers Roy Lee (The Ring, The Woman in Black) and Rob Tapert (Xena, Spartacus). According to the press release, "The project is a unique spin on the classic tale, blending the historical facts of the 15th century Prince of Wallachia with the fictional Dracula. Vlad Dracula traces his evolution from a revered ruler to the world's most feared vampire, and his slow downfall as he struggles desperately to hang on to his humanity, his wife and his kingdom."
Anyone else up for that besides me?
