Per Deadline, Janet Montgomery ("Made in Jersey," "Entourage," Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead, The Hills Run Red) will play Van Helsing, 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.
