ORLANDO BLOOM TO LEAD
|We haven’t seen him much on film in recent years, but he is now moving onto the small screens: as ‘Deadline’ reports, Orlando Bloom will lead Amazon’s fantasy series CARNIVAL ROW an eight part drama set in a neo Victorian city. Mythical creatures fleeing their war torn homeland have gathered in the city, and tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population.
In the series that follows the investi- gation of a string of unsolved murders that are eating away at whatever uneasy peace still exists, Orlando Bloom will play the man in the centre of it, Rycroft Philostrate, a police inspector investigating the murder of a faerie showgirl on CARNIVAL ROW. Rycroft is not supposed to care about the death of another faerish refugee, but he does, and getting to the bottom of what happened to her will come at a big cost.
Bloom is also a producer on the show, with Teen Wolf and Castle veteran Rene Echevarria writing and acting as showrunner while Victor Frankenstein’s Paul McGuigan directs. Carnival Row will begin filming in the fall, and it’s expected to be available on Amazon Prime in 2019.
