‘Arrow’ EP Lands Brides of Dracula Pilot Production Order from NBC


The brides of Dracula could end up landing their own TV series at NBC.

Deadline broke the news of the pilot presentation commitment from the network. The show comes from writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacas (Carrie, Glee) and TV producer Greg Berlanti (Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash).

Brides8, the show’s working title, would pick up in present day, following the three “sisters” from the classic Dracula films. According to Deadline, “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.” In the classics, the brides were murdered by Van Helsing, but the new series explores how the three would fare had they escaped.

The brides first showed up in Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula (1897). The vampire “sisters” are a classic part of the Dracula story and are known for using their beauty and charms to lure men into a trance before killing them. They even got their own film back in 1960, The Brides of Dracula.
