"Dracula" (TV show) on NBC is a provocative drama series version of the classic Bram Stoker novel starring Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers ("The Tudors," "Elvis") in the title role. The series is from the producers behind the critically acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning hit "Downton Abbey."

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.

The cast also includes 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").

"Dracula" is a production of Flame Ventures, Sky Living, Playground Entertainment, Universal Television, NBCUniversal International Television Production and Carnival Film & Television. Writer Daniel Knauf ("Carnival"), Tony Krantz, ("24," "Sports Night"), Colin Callender and Gareth Neame ("Downton Abbey") serve as executive producers.
