On October 25, NBC presents a bold new vision of the immortal Dracula tale and ETonline scored an exclusive clip from the series premiere.
Starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the iconic bloodsucker, the series begins with Dracula's arrival in 19th century London as he's masquerading as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the popularization of electricity, which is particularly useful for someone who avoids the sun. But his travels have a second purpose as Dracula plans to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan ... until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.
And while romance plays an important role, the action is not to be undersold as you can see in our exclusive clip. Watch!
Dracula premieres October 25 at 10 p.m. on NBC.
