Amazon Prime Releases Trailer & August Premiere Date For Fantasy Drama ‘Carnival Row’ Starring Orlando Bloom & Cara Delevingne
Amazon Prime Video today announced Amazon Original fantasy drama ‘Carnival Row‘, starring Orlando Bloom (‘Pirates of the Caribbean’) and Cara Delevingne (‘Suicide Squad’), will launch Friday, 30th August 2019. The “first look” art from the series was also released today along with a teaser trailer.
‘Carnival Row’ is a set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man. This growing population struggles to coexist with humans – forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society. Vignette harbours a secret that endangers Philo’s world during his most important case yet: a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row.
Joining Bloom and Delevingne, the series also stars David Gyasi (‘Interstellar’) as Agreus, a mysteriously wealthy faun who moves into an affluent human neighborhood in defiance of the social order; Karla Crome (‘Under the Dome’) as Tourmaline, a quick-witted faerie poet driven from her war-torn homeland; Indira Varma (‘Game of Thrones’) as Piety Breakspear, the regal and cunning matriarch of the powerful family that rules the city of The Burgue; And Tamzin Merchant (‘Salem’) as Imogen Spurnrose, a young woman who sees in Agreus an opportunity to turn her aristocratic family’s fading fortunes around.
‘Carnival Row’ comes from Legendary Television, with executive producers Marc Guggenheim (‘Arrow’, ‘Eli Stone’), René Echevarria (‘Star Trek’, ‘Teen Wolf’, ‘Castle’, ‘Medium’), Jon Amiel (‘Outsiders’), Bloom, and Travis Beacham (‘Pacific Rim’, ‘Clash of the Titans’). Beacham’s A Killing on Carnival Row, on which the project is based, appeared on the very first instalment of the Hollywood Blacklist in 2005.
‘Carnival Row‘ Season 1 premieres Friday, 30th August 2019 on Amazon Prime UK. It will also be available initially in the original version in over 200 countries and territories, with dubbed foreign language versions coming later this year.
