The Daniel Zovatto, Natalie Dormer and Nathan Lane starring Penny Dreadful: City of Angels has conditionally received $24.7 million as a relocating series under the Golden State’s $330 million annual incentives program.
“Choosing where to set up production for the next chapter of the Penny Dreadfulfable was one of the most important decisions we had to make, and there were many options we looked into,” said Showtime’s co-President of Entertainment, Jana Winograde of the move from Dublin for the John Logan created horror franchise. “Shooting in California obviously has many attractions, but without the state’s Film and TV tax credit it could become cost prohibitive,” the exec added. “We couldn’t be happier about how things worked out or the benefits it will bring to the job market.”
Production will begin this spring with a release date expected later this year or early 2020.
