Sean Bean's Frankenstein Chronicles Miniseries Finds U.S. Home on A&E

A&E will offer a Stateside home to The Frankenstein Chronicles, a six-episode period mystery/crime drama commissioned by the UK’s ITV and produced by Rainmark Films.

Set in 1827 London, the miniseries follows Inspector John Marlott (Legends‘ Sean Bean) as he makes the horrific discovery that a child’s corpse is actually a grotesque assembly of human body parts.

Marlott commences a hunt for the person behind this abomination, taking him into the dark corners of Georgian London, an underworld of prostitution, drug smuggling, body-snatching, murder for profit and other vices. Ultimately, one thing is certain — a demonic power is at work in the city, apparently attempting to reanimate the dead in a curious parody of the novel Frankenstein.

The cast also includes Anna Maxwell Martin (The Bletchley Circle), Charlie Creed Miles (Ripper Street), Steven Berkoff (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Samuel West (Mr Selfridge), Tom Ward, Ed Stoppard, Elliot Cowan, Hugh O’Conor, Joe Tucker, Kate Dickie, Lalor Roddy, Patrick Fitzsymons and Richie Campbell.

The Frankenstein Chronicles will premiere on A&E sometime in 2016.

    It’s very unlikely that he’ll die on this show.

    We’ll see how long he lasts on A&E

    Sean Bean, you can count me in.
    Having only six episodes in the miniseries means A&E probably won’t cancel it.
    Sounds like a nice show to pair with Bates Motel.
