After sharing actual show footage, I’m confused as to why Showtime is reverting back to promoting “Penny Dreadful” with teasers? Still, it’s cool to see this one get stitched together.
Premiering May 11, the show is said to feature some of literature’s most frightening and iconic figures as they grapple with alienation in Victorian London.
Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star. Dalton will be playing African explorer “Sir Malcolm,” while Carney has snapped up Dorian Gray. Hartnett will play the role of “Ethan Chandler,” a charming American who finds himself trapped in the darkest corners of Victorian London. Green will play “Vanessa Ives,” a seductive and formidable beauty full of secrets and danger. Treadaway will be assembled as “Victor Frankenstein.”
Oscar-nominee Logan created and wrote the series with the first two episodes to be helmed by The Orphanage and The Impossible director Juan Antonio Bayona.
