Showtime has released a new promo trailer for their new supernatural horror series, Penny Dreadful. It features Eva Green channeling her inner demons while praying. I'm really looking forward to seeing this series. I think it's going to turn out to be a good one.
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), Eva Green (Casino Royale), Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights and License to Kill), Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), and Danny Sapani (The Bill).
Skyfall's John Logan has written all eight episodes of the first season with Sam Mendes, who is also executive producing. The first two episodes are being helmed by director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage).
