Penny Dreadful: City of Angels has added Coyote Ugly and Covert Affairs star Piper Perabo.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Perabo will play "Linda Craft, the wife of Dr. Peter Craft (Rory Kinnear, a veteran of the first Penny Dreadful), who is head of the isolationist German-American Bund, and mother to Trevor (Hudson West) and Tom (Julian Hilliard). Linda is described as 'a fading American Beauty rose,' disappointed with her husband and bored with her constrained suburban life."
While the original Penny Dreadful series took place in Victorian London, City of Angels takes place in 1938 Los Angeles, where the city is shocked by a murder linked to Mexican folklore, Nazi spies and its own mysterious underpinnings. As Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) investigates the murder, he finds himself drawn deeper and deeper into the city's criminal and supernatural underworld.
Created, written and executive produced by John Logan, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels stars Daniel Zovatto, Natalie Dormer, Nathan Lane, Jessica Garza, Kerry Bishé, Ethan Peck, Adriana Barraza, Michael Gladis, Dominic Sherwood, and Johnathan Nieves, as well as Piper PeraboAmy Madigan, Brent Spiner, Lorenza Izzo, Lin Shaye and Adam Rodriguez in recurring roles.
