The series also stars Tom Ellis (The Fades, The Secret of Crickley Hall) as Victor Frankenstein and Chris Egan (Resident Evil: Extinction) as Dorian Gray.
Deadline reported the casting, and gave the following synopsis:
“Set in the present day, the ABC Studios/Mark Gordon Co. project weaves together a mythology that incorporates the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. It centers on Grace Van Helsing (Montgomery), a Pulitzer prize winning journalist from New York who takes over her family’s hometown newspaper. Dorian Gray (Chris Egan) provides her with the $20 million she needs to retain control of the paper, and she was romantically involved with Victor Frankenstein (Tom Ellis) years ago.”
