Carnival Row is an upcoming American drama web television series created by René Echevarria and Travis Beacham that is set to premiere in 2019 on Amazon Video. The series was directed by Jon Amiel and stars Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne.

Premise[edit]

Carnival Row will follow "mythical creatures who have fled their war-torn homeland and gathered in the city as tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population. At the center of the drama is the investigation into a string of unsolved murders, which are eating away at whatever uneasy peace still exists."[1]

Development[edit]

On January 9, 2015, it was announced that Amazon had signed a development deal for the series which, at the time, had Guillermo del Toro onboard as a co-writer, executive producer and director. The series was set to be co-written by del Toro, Travis Beacham, and Rene Echeverria. The series is based on a feature film spec script written by Beachem entitled A Killing on Carnival Row. The company ordered three scripts with the expectation being that if the series went into production that del Toro would direct the first episode.[2]

On June 6, 2016, it was reported that the production had been given a pilot order with the previously announced creative team still set to be involved.[3]

On May 10, 2017, it was announced that the production had been given a series order with Beacham and Echeverria still executive producing and with Echeverria expected to act as showrunner. It was also announced that filmmaker Paul McGuigan would be directing the series. By this point, del Toro had stepped away from the project due to his feature film schedule not permitting for him to stay on as an executive producer as the project moved forward.[4] On November 10, 2017, it was announced that filmmaker Jon Amiel had replaced McGuigan as director.[5]

Casting[edit]

In August 2017, it was announced that Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne had been cast in the series' two lead roles.[6][7] On September 22, 2017, it was reported that David Gyasi, Karla Crome, Indira Varma, and Tamzin Merchant had joined the main cast.[8] In October 2017, it was announced that Simon McBurney, Alice Krige, and Jared Harris had been cast in recurring roles.[9][10] On November 3, 2017, it was reported Ariyon Bakare was joining the series in a recurring capacity.[11] On December 15, 2017, it was announced that Andrew Gower and Jamie Harris had been cast in recurring roles.[12] On January 30, 2018, it was reported that Scott Reid had joined the cast as a series regular.[13]

Filming[edit]

The series spent almost five months in pre-production before filming began. The series was shot entirely in the Czech Republic throughout 108 shooting days.[14] Principal photography began in October 2017.[15] In February 2018, it was reported that the series was filming in Prague.[16][17] Filming concluded on March 14, 2018.[14]
