Amazon greenlights Legendary Television’s ‘Carnival Row’ to series

Amazon has  announced that it has greenlit original one-hour Neo-Victorian fantasy Carnival Row to series.

The eight-episode Amazon Original Series will be produced by Legendary Television and written and executive produced by showrunner Rene Echevarria, with Echevarria is Paul McGuigan set to direct and executive produce, and Travis Beacham serving as executive producer.

Beacham’s original script, A Killing on Carnival Row, appeared on the very first installment of the Hollywood Blacklist in 2005.

 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. We’re so excited about what Rene, Travis and Paul are creating and we can’t wait to bring it to customers.”

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