Stan has released the official trailer for the eagerly anticipated drama Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, premiering next month exclusively on Stan. The series stars Tony and Emmy winner Nathan Lane, Natalie Dormer, Daniel Zovatto, Kerry Bishé, Rory Kinnear, Adriana Barraza, Michael Gladis, Jessica Garza and Johnathan Nieves. 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.
A spiritual descendant of the original Penny Dreadful story, 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.
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels premieres 26 April only on Stan – same day as the US – with new episodes weekly.
