The team behind Sherlock are making a new Dracula series

The brains behind the BBC's Sherlock series are to make a new version of Dracula, the corporation has confirmed.

Moffat and Gatiss haven't even started writing or casting for Dracula, as both men are now working on separate projects. Collectively, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat have quite the couple of professional resumes that stand behind them - most notably in Moffat's six season tenure as the executive producer of Doctor Who, and Gatiss' work as an actor and screenwriter, including a starring role in Game of Thrones - and their work together on Sherlock certainly didn't hurt either one of their burgeoning careers. "But talks are already under way with the BBC - which enjoyed huge success with "Sherlock" - on broadcast rights in the United Kingdom", the story reports.

Beloved Actor Adam West, TV's Original Batman, Has Died Aged 88
The television series " Batman " debuted on United States television in 1966 and became a surprise hit, lasting three seasons. Adam West , the actor behind one of the most beloved and enduring renditions of Batman , died Friday night at age 88.

When Dracula does get underway, it is set to follow the same format as Sherlock, featuring a limited run of feature-length episodes. Sherlock propelled star Benedict Cumberbatch to worldwide fame and he's since begun appearing regularly in movies including Star Trek Into Darkness, The Imitation Game, and Marvel's Doctor Strange. BBC's global distribution also went a long way towards making Sherlock a worldwide hit, so Dracula seems very likely to end up there.

When Sherlock first aired on BBC in 2010, it became a global phenomenon, catapulting Benedict Cumberbatch into stardom.
