Upcoming Penny Dreadful spin-off series City Of Angels has finally rounded out its cast with six new stars.
Joining the series are Adam Rodriguez (Criminal Minds), Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong), Lorenza Izzo (Once Upon A Time In Hollywood), Michael Gladis (Mad Men), Dominic Sherwood (Shadowhunters) and Ethan Peck (Star Trek: Discovery).
Here’s a full breakdown of their characters:
Adam Rodriguez as Raul Vega, the eldest son of the Vega family and a righteous union leader and advocate for his people. Wise to the ways of the world, Raul tries to be a father-figure to his brother Tiago (Daniel Zovatto).
Thomas Kretschmann as Richard Goss, an aristocratic and mysterious German architect with grand plans for the future of Los Angeles: a manipulative master builder with unsettling connections to City Hall.
Lorenza Izzo as Santa Muerte, the Angel of Holy Death and sister of the charismatic demoness, Magda (Natalie Dormer).
Michael Gladis as Councilman Charlton Townsend, the ambitious head of the L.A. City Council’s Transportation Committee; a man of killer instincts and ruthless political wiles.
Dominic Sherwood as Kurt, the chauffer and bodyguard for Richard Goss. There’s more to Kurt than meets the eye: an unexpected depth and surprising background.
Ethan Peck as Herman Ackermann, the charismatic second-in-command at the German-American Bund. His aggressive politics, heated rhetoric, and personal magnetism inevitably create tension within the group and for the Bund’s leader, Peter Craft (Rory Kinnear).
The new stars join a cast made up of Natalie Dormer (Game Of Thrones), Rory Kinnear (Penny Dreadful), Daniel Zavotto (Don’t Breathe), Nathan Lane (The Birdcage), Jessica Garza (The Purge) and Johnathan Nieves (New Amsterdam).
City Of Angels is set in 1930s Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with Mexican-American folklore and social tension. The series will be rooted in the conflict between characters connected to the deity Santa Muerte and others allied with the devil, and will explore a mix of the supernatural and the combustible reality of that period, creating new occult myths and moral dilemmas within a historical backdrop. The show is worlds away from its Victorian London-set counterpart, and new characters and storylines will feature.
Penny Dreadful creator John Logan will produce through his Desert Wolf Productions banner, with Michael Aguilar and Neal Street Productions’ Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris executive producing alongside him. James Bagley will co-executive produce.
