The CW is heading to the 1880s with Transylvania, a drama project executive produced by Midnight Radio, the team of Jeff Pinkner, Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec and Scott Rosenberg, who are behind CBS’ summer series Zoo.
Written/executive produced by Hugh Sterbakov (Hell And Back), Transylvania is set in 1880. A headstrong young woman in search of her missing father ventures from NYC to Transylvania where she teams up with a wrongfully disgraced Scotland Yard Detective, and together they witness the births of the most famous monsters and villains in history.
CBS Studios, where Midnight Radio has a first-look deal, is producing. Sterbakov is repped by Gersh and Stone, Meyer & Genow. Midnight Radio, who continue as executive producers/showrunners on Zoo, recently renewed for a second season, is repped by WME.
