Well here’s something to really get your teeth into, and if you’re a fan of HBO’s Carnivale, I think you might be a little intrigued as to where this project could be heading.

According to Deadline, Dan Knauf (Carnivale) has joined NBC’s upcoming 10-episode series Dracula as the showrunner & head writer, while working with series creator Cole Haddon.

Dracula is currently being produced for NBC and the UK’s Sky Living by Tony Krantz’s Flame Ventures, Colin Callender’s Playground Entertainment, Universal TV and NBCU International Prods.’

The show is based on an idea by Krantz which is set in 1890 and has been described as “Dangerous Liaisons meets The Tudors.” Jonathan Rhys Meyers is set to play the iconic vampire in Dracula, which see’s him arrive 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.”

So what do you guys think? Does the inclusion of Dan Knauf make this any more sweeter?
