Because Greg Berlanti didn’t have quite enough on his plate… the prolific TV producer (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Mysteries of Laura) is teaming with Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Glee) on Brides, a gothic soap drama inspired by Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula.
According to our sister site Deadline, the potential NBC series would be based on the three brides of Dracula, who appear in literature as beautiful, powerful vampire “sisters” who reside with the Count in Transylvania, seducing men before killing them.
Although the women are vanquished by Van Helsing in the source material, Brides would be a “sexy reimagining” in which the ladies survived for centuries and are now living in, of course, New York City. The project is described as a family drama about a trio of strong, diverse females and the things they do to maintain wealth, prestige and legacy.
Aguirre-Sacasa will write the script for Brides, which has received a put pilot commitment at NBC — meaning it would be very expensive for the network not to greenlight it.
The wifeys in question have previously appeared in many film adaptations, including the 1992 flick Bram Stoker’s Dracula (pictured) and 2004’s Van Helsing.
