With just three weeks to wait until the premiere of “Penny Dreadful” on Showtime, the network has released another production blog (this one focusing on British exploration and the search for the Nile) plus another promo!
First up is Production Blog #8, in which author/historian Matthew Sweet discusses the impact of British exploration on Victorian life and how it relates to “Penny Dreadful.” That’s followed up by a new promo teaser titled “Just Like You.”
“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”).
Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star. 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.
