A&E To Air Sean Bean Frankenstein Miniseries In U.S.

A&E has confirmed that it will broadcast Sean Bean’s (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Martian) upcoming drama miniseries The Frankenstein Chronicles in 2016. The series, commissioned by UK channel ITV, is scheduled to air on British shores before the end of 2016.

The Frankenstein Chronicles as produced by Rainmark Films and according to a press release when the miniseries was announced last year, the series is set in London in the year 1927 and follows Inspector John Marlott (Bean) who is recruited by Home Secretary Robert Peel after he makes a grisly discovery following the apprehension of some opium smugglers: “The body of a dead child is washed up on the shore and on further examination of the corpse he is horrified to discover it’s not actually a child but rather a crude assembly of body parts arranged in a grotesque parody of a human form.  The mutilated child-like body leaves an indelible impression on Marlott and he finds himself unable to shake off the memory of what has happened that fateful night.”

“With a formidable reputation as an investigator, he is known as a man who ‘doesn’t know the meaning of fear,’ so it comes as no surprise when coldly efficient Peel, summons him insisting the ‘details of your investigation must remain confidential.’ And after what he’s witnessed Marlott accepts the challenge to track the perpetrator of this heinous crime. We follow him as he pursues the crazed killer behind the mutilated body.  As he investigates, Marlott discovers that what he’s dealing with is more horrific than he could possibly have imagined.”
