"PENNY DREADFUL" ON SHOWTIME(R) LEADS THIS YEAR'S NOMINATIONS FOR BAFTA TELEVISION CRAFT AWARDS

NEW YORK, NY - March 25, 2015 - As the 2015 awards race begins in earnest, the critically-acclaimed SHOWTIME psychological thriller PENNY DREADFUL was honored with the most nominations of any program this year for the annual British Academy Television Craft Awards. The nominations were announced this morning by The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), which recognizes the very best behind-the-scenes talent working in television. This year's ceremony will be held in London on April 26, and hosted by EPISODES star Stephen Mangan. In its first year of eligibility and leading into the Emmy(R) Awards voting season, PENNY DREADFUL led the way with five BAFTA Craft Award nominations for Costume Design, Makeup and Hair Design, Original Music, Production Design and Titles and Graphic Identity. PENNY DREADFUL returns for a second season with ten episodes on Sunday, May 3rd at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

The new season will find Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) and Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) forming a deeper bond as the group, including Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and Sembene (Danny Sapani), unite to banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them. Meanwhile, Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), the Creature (Rory Kinnear) and Brona (Billie Piper) are all waging battles of their own. Two-time Tony(R) Award winner Patti LuPone will guest star as a mysterious character of great importance in Vanessa's past. Helen McCrory returns as Evelyn Poole (a.k.a. Madame Kali), the seductive spiritualist who will pose a unique threat to our protagonists this season, along with Simon Russell Beale, who is back as eccentric Egyptologist Ferdinand Lyle. Additional guest stars include Douglas Hodge as a Scotland Yard investigator; Sarah Greene as Poole's powerful daughter, Hecate; and Jonny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past. A co-production with Sky Atlantic, PENNY DREADFUL is a drama series created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar(R) nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street Productions.
