‘Penny Dreadful’ Season 3 Open Casting Call

Project Casting

‘Penny Dreadful’ Season 3 open casting call for background actors.

Penny Dreadful is a British-American horror drama television series created for Showtime and Sky by John Logan, who also acts as executive producer alongside Sam Mendes.

The show was originally pitched to several US and UK channels, and eventually landed with Showtime, with Sky Atlantic as co-producer. It premiered at the South by Southwest film festival on March 9 and began airing on television on April 28, 2014, on Showtime on Demand. The show premiered on Showtime on May 11, 2014, the first in an eight-episode season.

The title refers to the penny dreadfuls, a type of 19th-century cheap British fiction publication with lurid and sensational subject matter. The series draws upon many characters from 19th-century Irish and British fiction, including Dorian Gray from Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, Mina Harkerand Abraham Van Helsing from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and Victor Frankenstein and his monster from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

On June 4, 2014, Showtime renewed Penny Dreadful for a ten-episode second season which premiered on May 3, 2015.
