TV: Penny Dreadful

A teaser trailer has been released for the up and coming tv-series, Penny Dreadful, created by US channel, Showtime with Sky Atlantic co-producing.

The show will star Josh Hartnett and Eva Green and is from the mind of John Logan – you will know him from writing Skyfall, The Aviator and Star Trek:Nemesis to name but a few.

Taken from the name of cheap, serial fiction magazines – think comic books of the 1800’s, the show will entwine the tales of all of our favourite classic literary horror characters including Dracula, Dr Frankenstein and Dorian Gray into a realistic (albeit supernatural) setting of Victorian London… Sound interesting? We think so.

Eva’s character is, according to well-trusted internet encyclopaedia, wikipedia, “a force to be reckoned with”… Ohhh, I say! Here she is in action:

Hits the small screen next year… will you be watching?
