NBC Introducing ‘The Wolfman’ to the evening Television Line Up

NBC is diving into the Universal vault once again and pulling out The Wolfman for a small screen adaption. Though Dracula has mixed reviews, the studio believes there is room for more classic movie monster action, and why not werewolves?

Supernatural themed shows have already flooded the evening line up on many stations, Teen Wolf, Grimm, Vampire Diaries, Witches of East End, and of course, Supernatural, to name just a few. The on-board creator will be Daniel Knauf, who is also Executive Producer and primary writer of the Dracula TV show, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Despite Dracula’s decline in ratings as the season goes on, the studio is moving forward with The Wolfman. Maybe Knauf, being no stranger to the werewolf genre, will help the show grab viewers, having written for the 2001-2002 show Wolf Creek, about a pack of wolves in Seattle suburbia. Of course, the highlight of Knauf’s career so far has been the HBO mini-series Carnivàle, which was well written and hosted an excellent cast, headed up by Nick Stahl, Clancy Brown, and Michael J. Anderson.

This new Wolfman incarnation will be an amalgamation of the classic 1941 Universal movie, and the 2010 remake starring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. If the trend continues, will The Creature From the Black Lagoon be far behind, or maybe The Mummy?
