LOS ANGELES, CA (April 4, 2014) – As we near the May 11th premiere of PENNY DREADFUL, this Sunday, during the season finales of SHAMELESS (9 p.m.) and HOUSE OF LIES (10 p.m.), SHOWTIME will give viewers more behind-the-scenes access to the highly anticipated drama series. This new trailer features interviews with series creator and three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan, executive producer Sam Mendes and series stars, including Josh Harnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green, who give insight into the psychological thriller premiering next month.
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, Licence 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). PENNY DREADFUL is a drama series created, written and executive produced by John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street. Of the eight episodes, the first two are directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, who helmed The Orphanage and the acclaimed film, The Impossible starring Naomi Watts in her Oscar-nominated performance.
