Pilot for a Brides of Dracula TV series in the works at NBC

09.02.2015by: Cody Hamman

NBC has given a pilot production commitment to BRIDES OF DRACULA, a "hot gothic soap drama" that centers on Dracula's three vampire brides, having survived their encounter with Van Helsing centuries ago and now residing in modern day New York City.

The project comes from CARRIE 2013 / THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN 2014 screenwriter Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Greg Berlanti, who has been behind recent DC Comics television properties like ARROW and THE FLASH.

BRIDES OF DRACULA is a

sexy reimagining of Dracula as a family drama with a trio of strong, diverse female leads, a show about empowered women and the things they do to maintain wealth, prestige, legacy — and their non-traditional family.

Aguirre-Sacasa is writing the pilot and will executive produce with Berlanti, and Sarah Schecther.

I will be watching the development of this one with some interest, but so far it sounds like something that will appeal more to fans of SEX AND THE CITY and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES than to me personally. Maybe I'm reading it wrong. I hope I am, I'd be glad to watch a weekly show called BRIDES OF DRACULA.
