UK's ITV Encore will be premiering "Game of Thrones" actor Sean Bean's horror-cum-crime thriller "The Frankenstein Chronicles" on 11 November.
The first episode, entitled "World without God", will see Bean's character John Marlott, a Thames River detective, getting lured into the dark world of crime and horror as he sets out to investigate the death of an innocent child.
According to reports, the story begins with Marlott discovering a child's corpse that is in fact a "grotesque assembly of human body parts."
"The dreadful corpse is brought to the urgent attention of the Home Secretary, Sir Robert Peel, who summons Marlott, and tells him that he wants him to undertake a private investigation. The leading surgeon at St Bart's hospital in Smithfield, Sir William Chester, tells Marlott that the corpse was made up of seven or eight bodies stitched together," an ITV press release reads.
The killer is either Victor Frankenstein or someone who has mastered his methods. Marlott soon finds himself at odds with the political as well as the medical establishments in the country, as his investigation takes him into the world of prostitution, bodysnatching , drug smuggling, and murder for profit.
"The Frankenstein Chronicles" will be aired on ITV Encore on Wednesday, 11 November at 10pm. Those in the U.S. will have to wait a bit longer to catch the series. According to reports, "The Frankenstein Chronicles" will be premiered on A&E only in 2016.
