‘ The Frankenstein Chronicles’ started filming yesterday!
The major new six-part drama series, produced by Rainmark Films, sees Bean return as John Marlott – no longer a mere mortal, Marlott’s purpose is to seek revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey for taking his life, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly convicted and hanged for murder. Set in 1830s London, Marlott must operate outside the law as he comes up against dark forces in high society and in the dangerous slums of the over-crowded capital.
Lets just hope this filming and MI6 won’t be conflicted 🙂
The Frankenstein Chronicles has been renewed to a Second Season!
ITV has commissioned a second series of the period crime drama, The Frankenstein Chronicles, starring multi award winning actor Sean Bean from producers Rainmark Films to be screened on ITV Encore.
Taking inspiration from Mary Shelley’s Gothic literary classic, the first series of The Frankenstein Chronicles, captured the imagination of both viewers and critics alike.
“Bold, eerily, effective and chillingly atmospheric,” said the Daily Telegraph, whilst The Guardian felt the drama “offers real, rare shivers” and TV Times critiqued Sean Bean’s characterisation of Inspector John Marlott – “Bean is great as an everyman in a strange world” whilst the drama was considered “deliciously creepy”.
Production of the new series is set to begin in Northern Ireland in January 2017 and will be executive produced by Tracey Scoffield and produced by David Tanner for Rainmark Films. Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Accused) will also executive produce the new series.
“We are thrilled to be working once more with Sean Bean in the role of John Marlott, who is a returning hero like no other,” said Executive Producer, Tracey Scoffield. “With the continued support of ITV and Endemol Shine International
we want to be more ambitious than ever with Season 2.”
The Frankenstein Chronicles will premiere on TNT.de (German) on April 19th! Be sure to check it out, will add it to our calendar asap 🙂
