First Look: Penny Dreadful
Vanessa: I believe in curses, I believe in demons. I believe in monsters. Do you?
It might be a few more months before Showtime and SkyAtlantic's co-production, Penny Dreadful airs for both US and UK/Irish viewers but at least we're getting some teasers for the upcoming series nonetheless and they're pretty decent.
The two teasers so far seem to be focusing on Eva Green's character, Vanessa Ives, the composed heroine of the piece as one trailer sees her on her knees praying while the other talks of her beliefs of curses, demons and monsters. As I've reported in previous blogs the cast also includes Josh Hartnett, Billie Piper, Timothy Dalton, Harry Treadaway, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear and Helen McCrory to name a few.
Hopefully a trailer with some clips from the episodes and other cast members will be imminent but if this show is a success, it looks like American Horror Story might have some competition in the anthology stakes.
