NBC Goes Full Supernatural This Friday, Airing Vampires Special Before Grimm and Dracula


In support of its new series Dracula as well as its supernatural-themed Grimm, NBC will be airing what they’re calling an “entertaining” hour of clips and celebrity interviews about our fanged fiendish friends this Friday at 8/7c. Appearances will include Carrie Preston and James Marstersand we get to watch three supernatural-type shows in a row on a Friday night, so thanks, NBC!

By the way, in the press release they call it Why We (heart) Vampires, which I presume is supposed to look like Why We <3 Vampires; Time Warner Cable lists it as Why We Love Vampires. Check your local listings.


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.

Why We Love Vampires, hosted by Tamron Hall and featuring Carrie Preston, Kristin Bauer, Anne Rice, and James Marsters, airs Friday, November 1 at 8/7c on NBC.
