The Brides: Gina Torres to star in ABC’s new Dracula pilot

According to Deadline, Suits alum Gina Torres has officially been tapped for one of the leading roles in Riverdale universe creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s upcoming supernatural drama titled The Brides, which was given a pilot order by ABC last January. If the pilot would successfully get picked up for a series order, this will mark Torres’ latest major TV role since starring in last year’s Suits spinoff Pearson which was cancelled after one season.

The Brides is being described as a new take on the Brides of Dracula which is based on the iconic characters from Bram Stoker’s classic 1897 horror novel Dracula. The series will be a family drama centered on a trio of powerful and diverse female leads. With strong horror elements, it is a vampire soap about empowered, immortal women and the things they do to maintain wealth, prestige, legacy — and their nontraditional family.

Torres is set to portray the role of Cleo Phillips, the leader of the titular vampire trio, who was a queen before she was turned into a vampire by Dracula. Now transform into a New York City real estate tycoon, Cleo is challenged professionally by a mysterious newcomer — even as her ties to her sisters are dangerously fraying.

The Brides pilot will be written and executive produced by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa with Maggie Kiley also set as an executive producer and director. The project will be the first non-Riverdale collaboration between Aguirre-Sacasa and Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions with Berlanti and Sarah Schecter set to executive produce.

The pilot is not only the horror series that Aguirre-Sacasa is currently working on. He is also developing a new series for HBO Max titled The Shelley Society which will center on iconic horror novelist Mary Shelley, who is best known for writing the classic novel Frankenstein.
