Vampire news! NBC considering Dracula TV series.
Set in the 1890s, it is described as “Dangerous Liaisons meets The Tudors” and as a big, sweeping international soap opera that is young, sexy and supernatural.
Ummmm, yeah. Ok then.

I don't know. Sounds like it could be good, lurid, melodramatic fun--like a modern-day take on Hammer Films. But, yeah, sounds more like cable than NBC. Are they forgetting that Dangerous Liaisons was rated R and The Tudors was on Showtime?

Re: vampires

The Hammer Dracula's dipped in quality quite badly and didn't have all that much content, and I say that as someone who adores them. Any TV adaptation would have to do a lot more with the story and build up better regulars with more interesting stories.

Re: vampires

My bet is that it will be a much-tamer True Blood, with lots of gorgeous costumes and location shooting, with soapiness making up for the lack of graphic sex. Doesn't really seem like the kind of thing broadcast in particular can do well.

Talk about vampires...

...what about a series called "The Vampire Lestat"?

This would cover several time frames, and show you youngsters what vampires (Anne Rice's) are REALLY about!

Let the lettuce and tomato throwing begin....

Re: Talk about vampires...

In all seriousness, maybe a few years ago when the whole vampire thing was just starting to ramp up... Something like this would have been a natural fit and done right, would have been a hundred times better than the "Vampire Diaries."

But I think it's played out by now (thankfully).. With True Blood still doing well in the ratings and the (gack) continued success of the Twilight movies, we're getting plenty of what we want. Once TB and Twilight are done, I hope they'll let the genre rest for a while.

But vampires never rest. They just keep rising from their graves . . . for all eternity.

That's kind of their thing.

Four Underworld novels wasn't enough? Or Tomorrow Sucks? Or The Black Shore? Or that Morbius story I did for Spider-Man years ago? Or my infamous bulemic vampire story?

Seriously, I'm getting itchy to write another vampire book. And those would be very fun projects. (I wouldn't mind tackling Dark Shadows or the Creature Commandoes either.)

I've been looking for the Underworld novels for some time but they're not easy to get hold of in the UK.

Creatures Commandoes is an old DC property that's been rebooted a couple of times. It's basically a military strike force team composed of a vampire, a werewolf, a Frankenstein-like monster, and, at various points, some other creatures.

Amazon have Rise of the Lycans (and 1 copy of Evolution at the moment) for relatively normal prices. The first one though is rather pricier. Blood Enemy (The non film one) can also be bought there second hand.

I'd recommend them. I haven't seen one for the new flick though

Alas, the first book is out-of-print these days, but used copies are still floating around . . ..
