NBC won’t be airing its “Van Helsing”-inspired skein “Transvylvania,” but the vampire fighter may still make it to the small screen.
Here! TV, which produces gay and lesbian themed-programming, is readying production on its own vampire take: “Young Van Helsing.”
But unlike Hugh Jackman‘s character in the Universal pic, this Van Helsing is a lover, not a fighter.
Specifically, he’s in love with Dracula.
Here! partner Paul Colichman says the premise of the show is,”What would happen if the love of your life really sucked?”
Skein takes place in London and the Caribbean, where production is slated to start this fall.
Colichman says he doesn’t expect any guff from NBC Universal, noting, “Van Helsing is in the public domain.”
Nevertheless, he adds, “Somehow I don’t think they were planning a show like this.”
