TV News: Penny, Halt, Fall, Promos

Penny Dreadful
New photos from Showtime’s psychosexual horror thriller series “Penny Dreadful” have arrived over at IGN along with some revealing character bios.

Halt and Catch Fire
AMC have announced a Sunday, June 1st 10pm ET/PT premiere date for their new series “Halt and Catch Fire”. The ten-episode series explores the rise of the PC era in the early 1980s. It’s in this period an unlikely trio take risks in the race to build a personal computer that will change the world as they know it.

The Fall
Production has begun on the second season of BBC Two’s Northern Irish crime drama “The Fall”. The network has tweeted a picture showcasing that filming had begun on the second episode in the last week of February.

Jamie Dornan wrapped filming the “Fifty Shades of Grey” film in mid-late February, so his shooting commitments on “The Fall” are unlikely to have been affected. [Source: Cinema Blend]
