NBC has unveiled 50 new photos from the first episode of its upcoming TV show, Dracula
The episode which is titled The Blood Is The Life

Dracula starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Dracula, Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Jonathan Harker, Thomas Kretschmann as Abraham Van Helsing, Jessica De Gouw as Mina Murray, Katie McGrath as Lucy Westenra, Nonso Anozie as R.M. Renfield and Victoria Smurfit as Lady Jane.
It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night – useful for someone who avoids the sun.
But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes 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.
From the producers of the critically acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning hit “Downton Abbey” comes Dracula, a twisted, sophisticated, and sexy take on Bram Stoker’s classic novel, proving that some stories never die. The 10-episode series is paired with “Grimm” on Friday nights and will premiere at 10PM on October 25th.
