CBS and Paramount Home Entertainment will release Showtime’s Penny Dreadful: City of Angels — Season One on DVD Sept. 29.
The show stars Daniel Zovatto and Nathan Lane as detectives in Los Angeles in 1938 who explore a grim murder in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.
The primary conflict involves the Mexican folklore deity, Santa Muerte, the caretaker of the dead and guide to the great beyond, and her spiritual sister, the demoness Magda (Natalie Dormer), who believes mankind is inherently evil and aims to prove her point.
