Man, Alan Moore is gonna sue somebody! The league of extraordinary TV ideas may have been killed outright in the case of Penny Dreadful, but at least it sports a boatload more quality than that train wreck of a film. So win win! The Showtime series kicks off on May 11, and sees famous literary figures team up to stop some threat or another.
Here’s another, fuller and bloodier trailer for the show. Vampire Diaries, beware.
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.
Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Timothy Dalton and Billie Piper star in Penny Dreadful.
