The first season of the Showtime thriller series hitting Blu-ray in October has been detailed. You can pre-order it here!
As previously reported, Paramount says 'Penny Dreadful: Season One' will have a Blu-ray release on October 7.
From three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan (Skyfall, Hugo, Gladiator) and Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall), PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychosexual drama that weaves together classic horror origin stories into a gripping series that is “moody, mystical and wonderfully twisted” (Cleveland Plain Dealer). PENNY DREADFUL, starring Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights) and Eva Green (Casino), completely reinvents literature’s most famous characters. Icons of terror such as Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and timeless figures from Dracula join a core of original characters in a dark and brutal quest to save a soul – even as they grapple with their own monstrous temptations.
The series also stars Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Danny Sapani (The Bill) and Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger). A co-production of Sky Atlantic, PENNY DREADFUL was created, written and executive produced by John Logan and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions, along with Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street.
The 3-disc set will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Ray Donovan: Season One, Episodes 1 & 2; What is a Penny Dreadful?; Literary Roots; Coming Together; The Artisans Pt. 1 & 2; The Grand Guignol; Prostitution and Sex in Victorian Times; British Exploration & The Search for the Nile; The Science of Medicine.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $54.99.
