The new psychological thriller Penny Dreadful will debut on Showtime on Sunday, May 11, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT. And in addition to announcing a premiere date, the network also unveiled a new super-creepy trailer. The series is described as a “frightening psychosexual thriller” and was created by John Logan (Hugo, Gladiator). Logan also executive produces along with Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and Pippa Harris.
Season one will consist of eight episodes.
In Penny Dreadful, some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters – including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light – have become embroiled in Victorian London. The series stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights, License to Kill) and Eva Green (Casino Royale). Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger) and Danny Sapani (The Bill) also star.
