Details On Sam Mendes’ “Penny Dreadful”

Showtime has confirmed that “Skyfall” scribe John Logan and director Sam Mendes’ new high-concept psychosexual horror series for the network has scored a title – “Penny Dreadful.”

Sounding akin to “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,” the series combines characters from 19th century literature including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and various characters from Dracula.

The characters will deal with the alienation they have to face whilst living in Victorian-era London. Shooting on the series kicks off in the second half of the year in the UK.
