The first episode is also available across multiple television and streaming providers’ devices, websites, applications and authenticated online services and their free on demand channels. In addition, the season premiere is available for free on the Showtime stand-alone service at Showtime.com.
Tony and Golden Globe winner and three-time Oscar nominee John Logan, the creator, writer and executive producer of the Emmy-nominated series Penny Dreadful, continues in those same roles. Michael Aguilar (Kidding) also serves as executive producer.
The 10-episode Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Season 1 will officially premiere on-air this Sunday, April 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
A spiritual descendant of the original series, 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 (Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (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 explores an exciting mix of the supernatural and the combustible reality of the period.
Along with Logan and Aguilar, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels is executive produced by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (1917) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road), both of Neal Street Productions. Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions produces, and James Bagley serves as co-executive producer.
Last month, Showtime announced that new customers who sign up before May 3 can take advantage of a 30-day free trial for the Showtime streaming service, available on Showtime.com and the Showtime app on all supported devices.
