Amazon Orders Del Toro's Carnival Row

Amazon Studios has picked up another Guillermo del Toro based production, the latest title green lit for the small screen is Carnival Row. The deal has been in the works since early 2015 and will follow on from Travis Beacham's 11 year old supernatural cult script titled A Killing on Carnival Row, that sadly never saw the light of day.

Carnival Row is set in the future in a city called The Burgue, which has a close resemblance to 18th Century London which is inhabited by humans, fairies and other fantasy based creatures. In typical fashion a vampiric serial killer is on the loose and it's up to steam punk detective Rycroft Phiostrate to catch the evil doer.
