Showtime’s PENNY DREADFUL Gains Some Cast

The new SHOWTIME series PENNY DREADFUL is shaping up to be an event worth checking out. Word dropped via THR that the show has cast itself its Doctor Frankenstein and its Harry Treadaway. You should remember him from THE LONE RANGER, or not.

For those of you who haven’t been paying attention, here is what PENNY DREADFUL is all about:

“The eight-episode drama revolves around some of literature’s famed monsters — including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and figures from the Dracula — weaving together classic horror origin stories as the characters grapple with their monstrous alienation.”

Showtime has a rich heritage of bringing some quality horror to the table so I think this one is going to be a winner!

The series starts production in October and will be hitting the home screen next spring. Keep it here, we’re all over this one.
