BAFTA Television Awards choses PENNY DREADFUL for Best Production Design/Set Decoration

PENNY DREADFUL was awarded the Production Design Award at the BAFTA TV Craft Awards on Sunday April 26th!
The award was shared by Set Decorator Philip Murphy SDSA and Production Designer Jonathan McKinstry.

The elaborately layered Victorian supernatural horror series on Showtime showcases remarkable sets depicting 1870's London filmed at the legendary Ardmore Studios just outside Dublin, a location chosen due to scope of the building of London streets, the full Grand Guignol Theatre, Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory, the British Museum and multiple elaborate interiors needing effects rigging for hair-raising scenes.
