Pitchee: Barry Ryan (producer)

Never The Bride
Living in the spooky North Yorkshire seaside town of Whitby, home to the Dracula Museum and often known as ‘goth central,’ Brenda & Effie are unusual friends.

Brenda, the former runaway bride of Frankenstein’s monster, is alive and well and running a bed and breakfast called the Spare Parts. Next door is the never-open, eternally dusty antique shop run by Brenda’s best friend Effie, the last in a long line of witches

And that huge hole in the Earth they call Bitches Maw is not just an archeological wonder, it’s the gateway to Hell. And at the end of our pilot, Brenda and Effie learn that their friendship is no accident and that their job is to protect the world from what can and will come down through Bitches Maw.
