The year is 1895. Steam-powered ships fly through the air. Clockwork robots have replaced servants. And a grisly murder has taken place in the dark night of New York City. Called to the scene of the ritualistic murder, newly appointed police commissioner Teddy Roosevelt discovers Detective Wayne and his police officers’ power usurped by two special investigators appointed by the White House: Occultist Edgar Allan Poe, a clockwork automaton housing the soul of the literary legend, and Mrs. Emma Entwistle, a dangerous assassin with a unique connection to the otherworld. When they elicit information from the demon Neshrew, a much darker and more dangerous plot of world domination is uncovered.
Welcome to the world of “The Mechanical Grave.” Steeped in the popular steampunk genre, the story paints an alternative history of the Victorian Era world. Founded in the science fiction of steampunk grandfathers Jules Verne and HG Wells and the horror of Edgar Allan Poe, “The Mechanical Grave” is an exciting adventure filled with robots, assassins, steam and clockwork powered inventions, magicians, demons, supernatural being, and a life in which magic is very real, although taboo. Debuting this fall, the producers are currently working “The Mechanical Grave” into an episodic show for television.
