Showtime: Penny Dreadful

Hits the airwaves on May 11.



From Hollywood Reporter:

Showtime's upcoming monster mash Penny Dreadful is set in 1891, but its themes are very modern.

The series, which stars Josh Hartnett and Eva Green, features a roster of classic monsters, including Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and Dracula and weave together the classic origin stories while exploring tones that the country is grappling with.

Penny Dreadful hails from three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (Hugo, Skyfall, Gladiator), who wrote the pilot and executive produces alongside Academy Award winner Sam Mendes and Neal Street's Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road).

The first-time showrunner (Penny Dreadful is the screenwriter's first stab at TV) noted that he drew inspiration from the old Universal horror movies of the 1940s that mixed and matched characters such as the Wolfman and Frankenstein. "I wondered if there was a way to do that now and take these characters seriously," he said of the show's genesis.
