NBC challenges True Blood for the crucial "vampire porn" demographic

Tired of vampires thrusting their hips into human ladies all over your television screen? Too bad! NBC is now getting into the "vampire hump show" business with its own 10-episode supernatural period piece, called Dracula. Starring world-class humper Jonathan Rhys Meyers (you will remember his frequently unclothed body from The Tudors and Match Point) this series has been marketed as "Dangerous Liasions meets The Tudors," and you know what that means: humping. And lots of it.

According to Deadline: "Dracula (Meyers) arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality, he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier but falls hopelessly in love with a woman who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife." So yeah, basically a version of Dracula.

Now if they could only find a way to make vampires actually sexy on broadcast TV.
