Pasadena, Calif. -- Showtime has given a series commitment to psychosexual horror series Penny Dreadful created, written and executive-produced by John Logan, the network announced at the Television Critics Association press tour Saturday.
Penny Dreadful brings characters from literature, including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and figures from Dracula together as they grapple with their alienation in turn-of-the-century Victorian London.
The series is the first television collaboration for Logan and executive producer Sam Mendes, who previously collaborated on the James Bond blockbuster film Skyfall. Mendes' Neal Street Productions will produce the series.
