Sky has dropped the first trailer for the Penny Dreadful spin-off, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, and confirmed a UK air date. The new ten-part supernatural period drama, from Tony and Golden Globe winner and three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (Skyfall, The Aviator, Gladiator), will debut on Sky Atlantic this July.
The show is set in 1938 Los Angeles. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) become embroiled in a sprawling story that echoes the history of Los Angeles, from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the underground activites of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism.
The series stars Nathan Lane, Natalie Dormer, Daniel Zovatto, Kerry Bishé, Rory Kinnear, Adriana Barraza, Michael Gladis, Jessica Garza and Johnathan Nieves.
The show premieres in the US April 26.
