Showtime released a teaser trailer for their upcoming new psychosexual horror series, Penny Dreadful.

Billie Piper, of Doctor Who fame, recently signed on to the series as an Irish immigrant seeking to escape her dark past. The new series also stars Josh Harnett, Eva Green, Rory Kinnear, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Harry Treadaway, Helen McCrory, Simon Russell Beale and Danny Sapani.

Penny Dreadful has three-time Oscar nominee John Logan, Oscar winner Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris on board as executive producers.

Some of literature's most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama.
