Sex, Style, Mystery & Adventure – Dracula “Seal the Deal” Promo
This Friday, a legend will be reborn.
NBC released another teaser promo for all-new series Dracula, airing this Friday after Grimm. The promo, titled “Seal the Deal,” gives viewers another glimpse into the bloody yet provocative drama series, as hype for the show continues to escalate as the premiere draws closer. In the pilot episode, Alan Grayson (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) hosts a lavish party where he becomes fixed on Mina, a woman who resembles his dead former flame. Mina’s fiancé Harker has his own worries about giving his wife-to-be the life she deserves. But perhaps he should be more concerned about the return of mysterious and boldly handsome Alan – otherwise known as ‘Dracula.’
“You are a man of secrets.”
Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) stars in this provocative new drama as one of the world’s most iconic characters. It’s the late 19th century and the mysterious Dracula (Rhys Meyers) has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night — useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: He hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife. Victoria Smurfit (“About a Boy”), Thomas Kretschmann (“King Kong”), Jessica De Gouw (“Arrow”), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (“Mr. Selfridge”), Nonso Anozie (“Game of Thrones”) and Katie McGrath (“Merlin”) also star.
Writer Daniel Knauf (“Carnival”), Tony Krantz, (“24,” “Sports Night”), Colin Callender and Gareth Neame (“Downton Abbey”) serve as executive producers. “Dracula” is a production of Flame Ventures, Sky Living, Playground Entertainment, Universal Television, NBCUniversal International Television Production and Carnival Film & Television.
