Meet two characters who seek pleasure within life’s darkness: Dorian Gray and Brona Croft. You can tell from their recently unveiled “Penny Dreadful” posters that both have a taste for the erotic… and don’t mind having some blood on their hands.
Reeve Carney portrays Gray while Ms. Croft is played by Billie Piper.
“Penny Dreadful” is set to premiere on Showtime on Sunday, May 11th, at 10PM ET/PT.
“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.
Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star.
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.
