Megalo Box is set in Japan in a fictional, futuristic timeline. In the show’s timeline, the class divide in Japan has reached a point where licensed citizens live in the heart of a wealthy city while unlicensed citizens live in the slum outside. In this dystopia, a new sport called Megalo Boxing has become extremely popular. Like boxing, Megalo Boxing involves pitting fighters against each other, but there’s a catch. In Megalo Boxing, fighters wear metal frames and mechanical limbs known as gear to enhance their speed and power. While the sport is a dangerous one, it’s popular across the world, and many compete in it.
In this backdrop, Megalo Box follows a young, promising boxer known as Junk Dog who fights in the underground, illegal fighting circuit. Despite Junk Dog’s talent, his coach – Gansaku Nanbu – fixes fights, and never utilizes Junk Dog’s full potential. However, Junk Dog’s life changes when he almost crashes his motorcycle into Yukiko Shirato, the head of an extremely wealthy group, and picks a fight against Yukiko’s bodyguard, Yūri, who also happens to be the world’s Megalo Boxing champion. Although Yukiko stops the fight, Yūri later seeks out Junk Dog in the illegal fighting circuit, and beats him hands down in one round. With Junk Dog beaten, Yūri challenges him to qualify for the global Megalonia tournament and fight him again.
Qualification to the tournament, which attracts fighters from all around the world, is hardly easy, but Junk Dog takes up the challenge. Backed by the criminal syndicate that fixed his matches, Junk Dog thus takes to professional, licensed Megalo Boxing. However, Junk Dog faces fighters the likes of whom he has never seen before, and he has to give it everything he has if he hopes to enter the final rounds of the tournament. The show traces Junk Dog’s journey as he goes from a lowly, unlicensed boxer to a professional, world-famous one.

Netflix and the BBC has a teaser for a new miniseries on the count called, appropriately, Dracula. And while you may not think we need a new take on the classic blood-sucker, we encourage you to hold your judgments until you watch the teaser. It, truly, looks fucked up in all the best ways.
The new three-episode miniseries, which promises a classic, period take on Drac, comes from Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, who previously rebooted two other British properties with wild success: Doctor Who and Sherlock. They imbued those long-running franchises with frank modernism and magnetic performers, making stars out of David Tennant and Benedict Cumberbatch, respectively. Based on the raucous, quick-cut imagery jam-packed into this teaser, it looks as though Gatiss and Moffat ain’t holding anything back. And we’re willing to bet that Claes Bang (The Square), the Danish actor tapped to play the Count, is hoping some of that “Gatiss/Moffat turning European actors into stars” energy rubs off on him as he sinks his fangs into the role — and into hapless victims like The Crown‘s John Heffernan, who plays Dracula’s foe, Jonathan Harker.
The story for the series is set in 1897 and revolves around the “blood-drinking count from Transylvania who sets his sights on Victorian London.”
The series will consist of three 90-minute episodes

King, Kim Roth, Poppy Hanks, Kenny Goodman, and Michael Green. Production companies involved with the series were slated to consist of Outlier Society Productions and MACRO.
