After wrapping up one of its last major midseason holdings in the 'Hannibal' finale, NBC has officially jumped into fall 2013 territory to set their upcoming premiere schedule. Among the highlights, 'Parks and Recreation' will jump across the pond from D.C. to London for its hour-long sixth season opener, while Jonathan Rhys-Meyer's 'Dracula' will bow in October, understandably.

We'd be hard pressed to say who had the most brutal of cancellations and fruitful pickups between the five major networks this weekend, but few would offer that NBC had any undeserved ends. Even so, the peacock has become the first among the five to set its major schedule, moving 'Revolution' and 'Parenthood' to new nights, scheduling Jonathan Rhys-Meyers 'Dracula' for fall and moving 'Community' and more to midseason!

For a series with a straight-to-series 10-episode order and an established leading man in 'The Tudors' star Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, we're increasingly drawn to NBC's forthcoming 'Dracula' adaptation without even a scrap of footage or photos. Previously casting its female leads, now we've learned that NBC's 'Dracula' has set its sights on the iconic professor Abraham Van Helsing, casting 'King Kong' star Thomas Kretschmann in the role with an unusual twist on the character.

NBC has yet to produce a single image from its forthcoming 'Dracula' series with 'The Tudors' star Jonathan Rhys-Meyers in the title role, but that hasn't stopped the Dan Knauf-helmed drama from making some strong genre castings. In addition to 'Arrow' star Jessica De Gouw's casting as the female series lead, 'Dracula' has also recruited 'Game of Thrones' star Nonso Anozie and 'Merlin' alum Katie McGrath as series regulars.

NBC's been rather quiet on the front of its upcoming straight-to-series adaptation 'Dracula,' little known other than 'The Tudors' star Jonothan Rhys-Meyers would take the title role for a series helmed by 'Carnivale' creator Dan Knauf. Now, new reports have emerged that recent (and future) 'Arrow' guest star Jessica De Gouw has joined the production in the role of the series' female lead Mina, but why have 'Dracula' details been in the crypt for so long?

Say, remember that 'Dracula' adaptation NBC was developing with 'The Tudors' star Jonathan Rhys-Meyers in the titular role? Yeah, neither did we, but with all the other programs on deck for NBC's future, including 'Hannibal' and the upcoming 'Community' delays preoccupying us, it was easy to let one slip. Things may be looking up for the adapted vamprie series, however, acquiring 'Carnivale' creator and writer as showrunner, but will 'Dracula' rise above or just plain suck?

Well, this is an odd play for the Trade Federation NBC.  All season long we've been following the new series on NBC's development slate, including those like 'Hannibal' which won't debut until mid-season, but now it seems a rather high-profile 'Dracula' adaptation with Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the iconic role has sprung up out of nowhere.  So what story will NBC's 'Dracula' tell, and how big is the episode order?

In the original novel of 'Dracula,' the vampire count arrives in London after a lengthy sea voyage from his native Transylvania, during which he made full use of the crew as a food source. Naturally, the men on board The Demeter didn't know that something horrible and undead was living in that coffin in the storage hold and most of them never set foot on dry land again. This segment of the story is getting fleshed out into a movie of its own, to be directed by Neil Marshall.
