Three new cast members have sunk their teeth into ABC's The Brides...
...Via Variety, Katherine Reis (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Sophia Tatum (I Am Not Okay With This), and Chris Mason (Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists) have all been cast in the pilot of ABC's The Brides, joining Gina Torres. From the team behind Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is writing the pilot, with Maggie Kiley directing, in a series which supposedly follows the three brides of Dracula and the things they do to maintain wealth, prestige, legacy, and their nontraditional family
According to the site, Reis will star as Lily Stevens, who is described as the youngest of the three Brides of Dracula. She's a "striving singer in New York City whose relationship to a news reporter threatens to tear apart her marriage to her “sisters.” In her former life, she braved the streets of Jack the Ripper’s London, until being “rescued” by Dracula."
Tatum will play the series regular role of Justine Strang. "Completely friendless and new to town, Justine shows up at the studio of Renée Pélagie (not yet cast), a top modeling agent in New York City — and the “middle” bride of Dracula. Renée soon takes this young, hungry, aspiring model under her wing, unaware that Justine may have a past with Dracula as well."
Mason will play Roland Grant. Described as a "stylish real estate mogul, he arrives in town to challenge Cleo (Torres) — the “Queen of New York City real estate,” and the leader of the brides of Dracula — for professional supremacy. With secret ties to Dracula, Roland has a personal stake in the destruction of the Brides."
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Maggie Kiley, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions will executive produce.
