'Gothica' (ABC)

<b>Logline:</b> A "sexy soap" centered around contemporary characters inspired by the mythology of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. It's kind of like "Once Upon a Time" meets "Revenge" meets TV's current horror craze. In other words, probably perfect for ABC.
<br><br>
<b>Why we're interested:</b> This could be a pretentious disaster or just another cheeseball curiosity, but ABC has lined up a solid cast -- including Janet Montgomery ("Made in Jersey") as heroine Grace van Helsing, Melissa George ("In Treatment") as villainous Grace Hunter, Chris Egan ("Kings") as Dorian Gray, Tom Ellis ("Once Upon a Time's" Robin Hood) as Victor Frankenstein and Seth Gabel ("Fringe") as Roderick Usher -- and it seems like the pilot would have to be a total disaster to not make it on the air.
