The CW, home to Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and iZombie, has just placed a great big pilot order for their 2016/2017 slate and period horror drama is amongst the bunch.
Transylvania will be set in 1880. Its plot:
...centers on a headstrong young woman searching for her missing father who ventures from Transylvania to New York, where she teams with a wrongfully disgraced Scotland Yard detective. Together, they witness the births of the most famous monsters and villains in history.
The synopsis sounds pretty similar to Showtime's Penny Dreadful, but the more horror on TV the better IMO!
Written/executive produced by Hugh Sterbakov (Hell And Back), the show is one of six pilots picked up by CW, including Riverdale and No Tomorrow.
