NEW YORK, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Showtime has posted a sneak peek video of its new Victorian London-set series, "Penny Dreadful," on YouTube.

It has been viewed about 17,000 times since it debuted online Tuesday.

Currently in production in Ireland, the show is set for a spring 2014 premiere. It stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway, Billie Piper and Danny Sapani.

"Some of literature's most famously terrifying characters -- including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel 'Dracula,' all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light -- have become embroiled in Victorian London. The series is a frightening psychosexual thriller created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions," the cable network said.

Juan Antonio Bayona is directing the first two episodes of the eight-part series.
