Entering A Seductive New World
Showtime’s Penny Dreadful spin-off show, Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels, started two Sundays ago, 26 April, and they have just released a new video previewing its third episode…
Tiago and Molly (Kerry Bishé) visit Santa Monica Pier in an effort to escape their complicated lives. Livid at the murder of his friends, Lewis interrogates Brian Koenig (Kyle McArthur), a young Cal-Tech student. Townsend (Michael Gladis) and Alex’s political agenda is jeopardized when Councilwoman Beverly Beck (Christine Estabrook) vows to fight them. Peter Craft (Rory Kinnear) discovers a dark truth when he visits Elsa at home. Mateo (Johnathan Nieves) visits the Crimson Cat dance hall and is invited into a seductive, dangerous new world. Starring Natalie Dormer, Daniel Zovatto, and Nathan Lane.
A spiritual descendant of the original Penny Dreadful story set in Victorian-era London, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels opens in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels premiered on Sunday, 26 April at 10/9c only on SHOWTIME.
