In the series, Victorian London is rocked by a supernatural event, which gives some people, mostly women, abnormal abilities. “But no matter their particular ‘turns,’ all who belong to this new underclass are in grave danger,” said HBO.
Widow Amalia True, played by Laura Donnelly, and inventor Penance Adair, played by Ann Skelly, seek to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.”
Olivia Williams, James Norton and Tom Riley are also in the cast.
Part One is executive produced by Joss Whedon, Bernadette Caulfield, Ilene S. Landress, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson and Philippa Goslett.
