NBC Schedules Dracula, Crossbones, About a Boy

DraculaYesterday, NBC announced its fall schedule, including three of its new adaptations. Dracula will air on Fridays at ten in the fall, and Crossbones will take over that timeslot at midseason. About a Boy will also premiere in midseason, on Tuesdays at 9:30. Undateable does not have a timeslot yet. Here are the official sites and excerpts from the descriptions for each show. Click through to see pictures, information about the cast, and more:

Dracula: “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.”

Crossbones (based on The Republic of Pirates): “It’s 1715 on the Bahamian island of New Providence, the first functioning democracy in the Americas, where the diabolical pirate Edward Teach, a.k.a. Blackbeard (John Malkovich), reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreant sailors. Part shantytown and part marauder’s paradise, this is a place like no other on Earth – and a mounting threat to international commerce.”

About a Boy: “After writing a hit song, Will Freeman was granted a life of free time, free love and freedom from financial woes. Now he’s single, unemployed and loving it. So when Marcus (the oddly charming 11-year-old next door neighbor) stops by, Will’s not so sure about being a kid’s new best friend… until Will discovers that women find single dads hot. Well, that changes everything. A deal is struck: Marcus will pretend to be Will’s son, and in return Marcus is allowed to chill at Will’s house, playing ping-pong and gorging on steaks – something Marcus’ single, needy (and very vegan) mother would never allow.”

Undateable: “When confident slacker Danny Beeman (‘Whitney’s’ Chris D’Elia) takes Justin on as a roommate, Danny unwittingly inherits Justin’s group of romantically challenged friends. Seeing himself as the ultimate player, Danny decides to teach the crew (whom he dubs ‘The Undateables’) everything he knows about ‘the game of love.'”
