A spooky new series, Penny Dreadful premieres May 11 on Showtime.  The series weaves together classic horror characters from Victorian literature such as Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and Dracula into one frightening drama that looks like it is in the vein of Carnivale and American Horror Story.  The series stars former James Bond - Timothy Dalton as Sir Malcom; Eva Green (300: Rise of an Empire) as Vanessa Ives;  Reeve Carney (Spider man: Turn Off the Dark) as Dorian Gray; Josh Hartnett (30 Days of Night) as Ethan; Billie Piper (Secret Diary of a Call Girl) as Brona Croft; and Harry Treadaway (Control) as Dr. Victor Frankenstein.  

The title of the series is derived from a type of fiction serials that were published in 19th century England that featured lurid and macabre stories that appeared over a number of weeks and cost a penny.
