On August 30 Amazon Prime will be releasing Carnival Row, a new fantasy series set in a Victorian London where humans live alongside fantasy creatures. The story will focus on a relationship between a human played by Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Carribean's Orlando Bloom, and a fairy played Suicide Squad and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets' Cara Delevigne. The show is created by Rene Echevarria, who spent time as a writer for both Star Trek: TNG and DS9, before co-creating The 4400, and is based on a spec script written by Pacific Rim writer Travis Beacham back in 2005. Beacham and Echevarria will serve as Executive Producers, with Echevarria as showrunner. Here's the official description from the show's Amazon page: The article on Deadline announcing the series included a bit more detail, including the fact that the fantasy creatures are all immigrants to London, and that the series will deal with immigration issues.

Most of the cast that I know is good to great. The premise also sounds really cool, and I love the Victorian era.
