While Homeland just wrapped its third season this past Sunday, Showtime is taking this opportunity to tease one of its new drama series on tap for 2014: Penny Dreadful. Created and written by Skyfall screenwriter John Logan and executive produced by filmmaker Sam Mendes, the psychosexual horror series takes place in Victorian London and weaves together the classic origin stories of horror icons like Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Grey, and several characters from Dracula. Though this teaser is very light on footage, it gives us a nice idea of the show’s tone and visual style. Production is currently underway on the 8-episode first season, with Juan Antonion Bayona (The Orphanage) directing the first two episodes.
Hit the jump to watch the teaser, titled “We All Have Our Demons”. The series stars Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway, Billie Piper, and Danny Sapani. Penny Dreadful will premiere on Showtime in spring 2014.
