NBC has handed out a pilot production commitment to “Brides,” a high-concept gothic soap drama from playwright and screenwriter Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Looking,” “Carrie”) and TV producer Greg Berlanti (“Supergirl,” “The Flash”).
Set in contemporary New York, the project re-imagines Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” novel and follows the idea that the vampire’s three powerful female vampire brides weren’t killed by Van Helsing. Instead, they survived for centuries and are now living in New York City.
The story will follow how the characters maintain wealth, prestige, legacy and their very non-traditional family. Aguirre-Sacasa, Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will executive produce.
