It doesn't look like vampires are going away anytime soon. NBC is taking the classic tale of Dracula and transforming it into a contemporary drama series. Accoroding to Deadline, NBC has what's called a “script-to-series” commitment, which means that it won’t go through a pilot stage but will end up going straight to series if the NBC executives like the script.

The series is being developed by producers Tony Krantz and Colin Callender and is being written by Cole Haddon. According to the report, the show will be set in the 1890s, and is described as "Dangerous Liaisons meets The Tudors and as a big, sweeping international soap opera that is young, sexy and supernatural."

I have no idea how this series will turn out if it gets picked up. Maybe it will be good, but there's so much crap on TV these days that you never know. The fact that NBC is trying to get in on the vampire bandwagon is also kind of annoying. I'm sorry... I'm just getting tired of all the vampire shit. What do you think?
