Check out the press release below:
Amazon Prime Video today announced that Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) is set to star in its original one-hour fantasy noir Carnival Row. Delevingne, who will join recently announced Orlando Bloom, will play Vignette Stonemoss, a faerish refugee who flees her war-torn homeland to come to the Burgue, where she must contend not only with rampant human prejudice against her kind, but with the secrets that have followed her to this new land.
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 Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans), who will serve as executive producer and wrote the feature script on which the project is based, A Killing on Carnival Row, which appeared on the very first instalment of the Hollywood Blacklist in 2005, as well as Paul McGuigan (Victor Frankenstein, Luke Cage, Sherlock) who is set to direct and executive produce. 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.
