It might say May 11th on the image above, but thanks to our friends at Showtime, we’re able to give you a first look at the pilot for Penny Dreadful right here!
Some of literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. Penny Dreadful is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama.
Starring Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Billie Piper, Rory Kinnear, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Harry Treadaway Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale, Penny Dreadful is the creation of writer John Logan who executive produces the series with Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris.
Check out the pilot after the jump, and let’s hope it’s better than The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (the movie, not the comic)…
FYI, there’s also the uncensored version of the above pilot available HERE.
