NEW YORK – October 28, 2013 – NBC today announced that it will air a one-hour primetime special, “Why We (heart) Vampires” on Friday, November 1st at 8pm ET.  Hosted by NBCUniversal News Group’s Tamron Hall, “Why We (heart) Vampires” is a collection of fun, comedic interviews accompanied by entertaining clips from our favorite vampire moments.  The special will air before an all new “Grimm” followed by “Dracula,” starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Our fascination with vampires goes back decades, if not longer, and they continue to captivate our imaginations. Produced by NBC News’ Peacock Productions, “Why We (heart) Vampires” will feature a mix of some of Hollywood’s greatest vampire experts, including “Dracula’s” Victoria Smurfit; author Anne Rice; “True Blood’s” Kristin Bauer and Carrie Preston;  Cassandra Peterson, best known as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark; “Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s” James Marsters, and more. From our fascination with vampires, to their immortality and super human powers, Hall will explore why these night stalkers continue to have such an enduring appeal.

    Ah, trying to boost the ratings of Grimm I see. Good move NBC…good move.

    Very smart choice! The season 3 premiere of Grimm last Friday was very excellent!

  • DryedMangoez

    A simple, cheap special that can help boost Grimm and Dracula. Not bad!

    NBC should’ve put this on Thursday at 8:00 since Big Bang Theory is a repeat and vampires and zombies are very in right now.

    I thought this was a prank… But then I read James Marsters and I got all giggly fanggirl….

    NBC is the new UPN.

    Someone at NBC is starting to get a clue. Nice, although I’m getting a bit tired of vamps (and zombies) myself. Dracula though seems like fun and I love the style they’re doing it in.
