Variety is reporting that Suits alum Gina Torres has signed on to star in ABC drama pilot The Brides.
From Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale), with Greg Berlanti executive producing, The Brides is described as a contemporary reimagining of Dracula that focuses on the relationship between his three immortal wives and the lengths these women will go to maintain their wealth, prestige, and legacy.
Torres will play Cleo, an imperious woman who was a queen in her mortal life before Dracula turned her following the death of her husband. The series finds real estate maven Cleo challenged professionally by a mysterious newcomer and the relationship with her fellow Brides of Dracula fraying at the seams.
In addition to the USA drama, Torres has appeared on the likes of Pearson, Firefly, and Alias.
