Carnival Row - Orlando Bloom to Star in Amazon's Fantasy Series



Orlando Bloom to Star in Amazon Original Series "Carnival Row," Produced by Legendary Television

Amazon today announced that Orlando Bloom is set to star in its original one-hour fantasy noir Carnival Row. Bloom will play Rycroft Philostrate, a police inspector investigating the murder of a faerie showgirl on Carnival Row. Rycroft is not supposed to care about the death of another faerish refugee, but he does, and getting to the bottom of what happened to her will come at a big cost. Bloom, who also serves as producer, most recently starred in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales reprising the role of Will Turner.

The eight-episode Amazon Original Series, produced by Legendary Television, will be written and executive produced by showrunner Rene Echevarria (Star Trek, Teen Wolf, Castle, Medium). Joining Echevarria is Paul McGuigan (Victor Frankenstein, Luke Cage, Sherlock) who is set to direct and executive produce, and Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans), who will serve as executive producer and wrote the original feature script, A Killing on Carnival Row, which appeared on the very first installment of the Hollywood Blacklist in 2005. The series is scheduled to begin filming this fall for a 2019 release.

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.
