NBC is working on a Brides of Dracula TV series, and it sounds silly. Did they really cancel the Constantine TV series for this? The three brides become free from Dracula’s control and are now “empowered women” who will do things to maintain wealth, prestige, legacy” and family. What!? Will they still be vampires, I think so. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Carrie (2013), The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014)) is set to write the series. NBC is working on the pilot now, and the new TV series is called Brides. NBC has committed to creating the pilot and will be set in modern-day New York City. NBC wants to answer “what if the brides of Dracula hadn’t been staked and decapitated by Abraham Van Helsing?” What do you think of the Brides TV series?
Brides is described as 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.
