ITV has commissioned ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’, a re-imagining of the Frankenstein myth as a six-part period crime drama, to be produced by Rainmark Films. Filming will begin in Northern Ireland with funding from Northern Ireland Screen in January 2015 and further information with regard to casting will be announced soon.

‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ will commence its’ 14 week shoot on 26th January, 2015.

The series is billed as a mix of the ‘investigative and horror genres’ with Sean Bean (‘Game of Thrones’) playing Inspector John Marlott. Set in Regency London in 1827, ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ has been created by Emmy-nominated director and writer Benjamin Ross (‘The Young Poisoner’s Handbook’) and writer Barry Langford (‘Torte Bluma’).

The Frankenstein Chronicles will be produced by David Tanner for Rainmark Films (‘Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight’ – as co-producer) and Carol Moorhead (‘Line of Duty’, ‘Wodehouse In Exile’ – as line producer). Executive Producers are Rainmark Films’ Tracey Scoffield (‘Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight’) and Frank Doelger (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Rome’). The drama’s co-creator Benjamin Ross, whose credits also include ‘Poppy Shakespeare’ and ‘RKO28’, will direct the series.

‘Marlott’s investigation takes him into the dark corners of Regency London,’ said Ross.

‘He discovers an underworld of prostitution, drug smuggling, bodysnatching, and murder for profit. The rational evidence points first one-way and then another as he contemplates a frightening alternate scenario.’

ITV’s Director of Drama, Steve November and Controller of Drama Victoria Fea have commissioned the series for ITV Encore.

Endemol Worldwide Distribution will be responsible for international sales outside UK/Ireland.

‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ is now seeking crew for positions across all departments. More information can be found at: www.northernirelandscreen.co.uk/sections/87/calls-for-crew.aspx.
