Showtime has released Chapter 2 of its Production Blog for the upcoming "Penny Dreadful," and this time we have creator/executive producer John Logan discussing the series' ties to horror literature like Dracula, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein, and The Picture of Dorian Gray.

(New Video) Eva Green Seeks Salvation in New Teaser for Showtime's 'Penny Dreadful' with Josh Hartnett 

As Homeland's season came to a shocking close, Showtime is ready to keep the drama coming with an all-new original series in Penny Dreadful. Bringing horror to the pay-cable network, the drama finds a fresh take on iconic characters while thus far we've received only small teases as to what's to come ahead. Now, a new teaser unveils one of our key characters as she comes face to face with something much darker hidden up her sleeves.

Described as a frightening psychological thriller, Penny Dreadful takes some of literature's most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, and blends their classic horror origin stories together. Josh Hartnett plays lead Ethan Chandler, a charming American who finds himself trapped in the darkest corners of Victorian London where the same monsters are lurking.

Penny Dreadful is created, written and executive produced by John Logan (Skyfall) and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and Neal Street's Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road). Of the eight episodes, the first two will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible).

Co-starring Eva Green, Billie Piper, Rory Kinnear, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney and more, Penny Dreadful is set to premiere sometime in 2014.
