Dracula: The Series is a syndicated series about Count Dracula, and was broadcast from September 29, 1990 to May 11, 1991.

PlotEdit

Count Dracula is using the alias of "Alexander Lucard", and is a wealthy tycoon (the name "A. Lucard" being "Dracula" backwards). He is constantly on guard against attacks from Gustav Van Helsing, as well as Gustav's young nephews - Maximilian and Christopher Townsend. They were also aided by a schoolgirl, Sophie Metternich. Romantic tensions developed between Chris and Sophie.

The series formula was relatively straightforward, with the four heroes learning of some plot by Lucard/Dracula and attempting to foil it, with at least some success. In keeping with the novel, but not most film and television lore, vampires could walk in sunlight but lacked their powers. Anyone bitten just once by a vampire transformed into a zombie-like servant. This process could be stopped by applying holy water to the bite.
