BBC One and Netflix have partnered up for a retelling of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
The three-part series, written and created by Sherlock’s Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, will be a reintroduction to literature’s most famous vampire as he plans to cause chaos in Victorian London.
Moffat and Gatiss said, “There have always been stories about great evil. What’s special about Dracula, is that Bram Stoker gave evil its own hero.”
BBC's Director of Content, Charlotte Moore, said of the new project, “Genius duo Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss turn their attentions to Dracula for unmissable event television on BBC One."
Bram Stoker’s classic novel has inspired TV and film since the 1930s, with the most recent adaptation hitting screens in 2013 starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
“We can’t wait to bring Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ brilliant storytelling to our members around the world and we are eager to collaborate on yet another series with the BBC," added Larry Tanz, Netflix's Vice President of Content Acquisition.
The co-produced series is set to air on BBC One in the UK and on Netflix outside of the UK, and China where the service is not available.
