They should release the DVDs just to assess interest in America. The biggest benefit of any reboot is having a big brand name - any potential buyer is going to want to assess that.

Did the series even air in America?
I doubt that's important. I mean, to put it another way, it's an American remake of a foreign TV series. The US Office, Homeland, etc. most of these shows don't assume or require that there is an audience which is familiar with the original program.

NBC has ordered Dracula, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, straight to series with a 10-episode commitment. Deadline has the story here.
At first I thought this was actually the series JMS was attached to and then remembered that was called Vlad Dracula and is on Starz. I wonder how the two rival 19th century Dracula TV shows will fare against each other.
