DESCRIPTION:
(from A&E's press release, October 2015) A&E Network will air the six-episode period mystery crime drama series, "The Frankenstein Chronicles," produced by Rainmark Films and distributed by Endemol Shine International, in the US. The hour-long drama starring Sean Bean ("Game of Thrones," "Legends") is a thrilling and terrifying re-imagining of the Frankenstein Myth set in 19th century London. The announcement was made today by Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President of Programming for A&E. "'The Frankenstein Chronicles' uniquely merges classic elements from both the crime and horror genres which pairs perfectly with A&E's growing scripted slate," said Frontain Bryant. "We're excited to be partnering with Endemol Shine to bring this intriguing and sophisticated series to American audiences." London, 1827. After a successful operation by the Thames River Police to apprehend a gang of opium smugglers, a child's corpse is discovered. Inspector John Marlott (Sean Bean) is horrified to discover that it's not actually a child, but a grotesque assembly of human body parts.
