We have a few more weeks to wait until “Penny Dreadful” debuts on Showtime, and a new production blog has arrived to help fill the time! Author/historian Matthew Sweet takes Reeve Carney (Dorian Gray) on a tour of London to learn about the role of prostitution and sex in the Victorian age.
“Penny Dreadful” is set to premiere on Showtime on Sunday, May 11th, at 10PM ET/PT.
Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star.
“Penny Dreadful” is created, written, and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Neal Street’s Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, “Call the Midwife”). Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage, The Impossible) directs the first two episodes.
Some of literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. “PENNY DREADFUL” is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama.
