?Carnivale? Creator to Run NBC?s ?Dracula?

In what is easily the best news we've heard all damned day, Deadline, has learned that Dan Knauf, creator of the cult HBO series "Carnivale," has joined NBC?s upcoming 10-episode series "Dracula" as showrunner/head writer, working with series creator Cole Haddon.

NBC's "Dracula" will feature Jonathan Rhys Meyers ("The Tudors", Shelter, Velvet Goldmine) as the iconic vampire. The series, from producers Tony Krantz and Colin Callender and writer Cole Haddon, is being produced for both NBC and the UK?s Sky Living. It was originally bought by NBC in January with a ?script-to-series? commitment, meaning that it wouldn?t go through a pilot stage but straight to series if NBC brass liked the script.

In the NBC/Sky Living series Dracula (Meyers) arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier but falls hopelessly in love with a woman who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife. ?It is a timeless tale with relevant, surprising twists and turns with the exquisite Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the marquee role,? Bajaria said.
