Carnival Row - Fantasy Drama Ordered to Series by Amazon



Amazon has given an eight-episode straight-to-series order to fantasy drama Carnival Row, from Rene Echevarria (Star Trek), Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim) and Legendary Television. Joining them is director-producer Paul McGuigan (Victor Frankenstein).

Carnival Row is a fantasy-noir set in a neo-Victorian city. Mythical creatures fleeing their war-torn homeland have gathered in the city, and tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population. We follow the investigation of a string of unsolved murders which are eating away at whatever uneasy peace still exists.

“There has never been a series like Carnival Row before,” said Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy, Drama and VR, Amazon Studios. “The scope of the storytelling combined with the uniqueness of the world, themes and aesthetics haven’t been on TV before. A simple police investigation will lead us down a remarkable journey in a world where humans and creatures co-exist.”

The series is scheduled to begin filming in the fall of 2018 for a 2019 premiere.

“Carnival Row is inspiringly ambitious and timely in a way that we never could have anticipated,” said Lauren Whitney, President of Scripted Television at Legendary. “We are thrilled to have excellent partners at Amazon, and the infinitely talented trio of Echevarria, McGuigan and Beacham as the driving force behind this show.”
