Adding dark and sexy drama to the mix, Diva Universal debuts the new series, Dracula right after Supermodelme. Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) plays one of the world’s most iconic characters in this provocative new drama, and will certainly be a legendary force that will drive viewers coming back for more.
From the producers of Downton Abbey comes the Victorian romantic thriller where the mysterious Dracula arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. Revenge is in his blood as he plots to take revenge on those who cursed him to an immortal life centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan, until he becomes infatuated with a woman who happens to be a reincarnation of his dead wife. This twisted tale of a man obsessed with love is a sophisticated take on Bram Stoker’s classic that’s not to be missed, premiering exclusively on DIVA Universal.
