BBC ONE AND NETFLIX TEAM UP TO CO-PRODUCE DRACULA FROM SHERLOCK PRODUCERS HARTSWOOD FILMS

BBC One has commissioned Dracula from the co-creators of multi-award-winning hit BBC drama Sherlock. It will be produced by Hartswood Films and is a co-production between BBC One and Netflix.

The 3x90' mini-series is written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss and inspired by Bram Stoker's classic novel. Three feature length episodes will re-introduce the world to Dracula, the vampire who made evil sexy. In Transylvania in 1897, the blood drinking Count is drawing his plans against Victorian London. And be warned: the dead travel fast.

The series will premiere on BBC One in the UK and on Netflix outside of the UK/Ireland, and China where the service is not available. BBC Studios Distribution, who brokered the deal with Netflix for Hartswood Films, is the international distributor.

Co-creators, writers and executive producers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss said, "There have always been stories about great evil. What's special about Dracula, is that Bram Stoker gave evil its own hero."

Charlotte Moore, BBC Director of Content, said, "Genius duo Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss turn their attentions to Dracula for unmissable event television on BBC One."

Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama said, "Steven and Mark's ingenious vision for Dracula is as clever as it is chilling. In their talented hands the fans will experience the power of Bram Stoker's creation as if completely anew. We are thrilled to be collaborating with them and the brilliant team at Hartswood on yet another iconic British series."

Larry Tanz, Vice President, Content Acquisition, Netflix said, "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."

Sue Vertue, Executive Producer, Hartswood Films said, "We are absolutely thrilled to be back at the BBC, and also delighted that Netflix are coming on board with Dracula. There's nothing like fresh blood."

Dracula was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content and Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama. It is written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss; executive producers are Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue for Hartswood Films, Ben Irving for BBC and will be handled by Larry Tanz for Netflix.
