ITV has released a brief trailer for Jekyll and Hyde.
Created by The Fast Show writer Charlie Higson and inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, the ten-part drama will feature “spooky creatures, ghouls, zombies, werewolves and vampires” in 1930s London.
The 10-second clip reveals that the series will begin on ITV this autumn.
Watch the teaser…
Da Vinci’s Demons star Tom Bateman will play “young, attractive, troubled hero” Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor, alongside Richard E Grant (Downton Abbey) as Sir Roger Bulstrode, who heads the secret government department M10 known as ‘The Invisible Men’, and Natalie Gumede (Doctor Who) as Bella, who’ll be involved in a love triangle with Robert.
Jekyll and Hyde began filming in Sri Lanka and London earlier this year.
The official synopsis reads: “At the heart of the drama is Robert Jekyll’s quest to discover his real identity, his true family history and the nature of his ‘curse’. Jekyll transforms into Hyde in moments of extreme anger, stress and when his or the lives of others are threatened.”
The cast also includes Stephanie Hyam (Murdered By My Boyfriend), Donald Sumpter (Game Of Thrones), Amit Shah (The Smoke), Phil McKee (Ripper Street), Christian McKay (Rush), Ruby Bentall (The Paradise), Enzo Cilenti (Game of Thrones), Lolita Chakrabarti (Death in Paradise), Michael Karim (Inspector Lewis) and Ace Bhatti (Silk).
