Penny Dreadful premieres in the US


It’s Showtime

The SHOWTIME series Penny Dreadful, which stars Eva Green, Timothy Dalton and Josh Hartnett and was filmed in Wicklow and Dublin, will have its US premiere on Sunday, May 11th, at 10pm Eastern time.

SHOWTIME have put together an exciting microsite for this eagerly anticipated series, which includes a production blog with behind-the-scenes photos and info from the set in Ardmore Studios.

Audiences on this side of the world will get to see it on Sky Atlantic later this year. Watch the teaser and find out more here.

The series sees some of literature’s most terrifying characters — including Victor Frankenstein and his Creature, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula — become embroiled in Victorian London.

Penny Dreadful was created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar® nominee 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 Productions. Penny Dreadful was produced in Ireland by Octagon Films for SHOWTIME and Sky Atlantic, with funding from Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board.
