A new series is gearing up to premiere on Showtime and it stars Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green. The dark and surreal series released a teaser-trailer that will probably raise more questions than answer, as is the case with teaser-trailers.
The show turned heads when it was first announced since it was created by popular horror-writer John Logan (“Sweeney Todd,” and “Hugo”) who is also sitting as the executive producer. Joining Logan in that title are Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris. As Showtime describes the series, “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.”

“Penny Dreadful,” may be teasing new trailers but the show has a long time before it premieres, the series won’t begin until May 11, 2014 and will launch at the 10 p.m. time-slot.
