Licensees Titan Books and Bif Bang Pow! will set the foundation for a concentrated merchandising campaign.
“‘Penny Dreadful’ reflects a unique aesthetic and our partners have captured this distinct vision,” says Liz Kalodner, executive vice president and general manager, CBS Consumer Products. “This program continues a legacy of strong merchandising programs for Showtime programming and we know it’s going to resonate with fans.”
Titan Books will publish special editions of the classic novels that inspired the “Penny Dreadful” series. Deluxe hardcover editions of Mary Shelley’s
, Bram Stoker’s
and Oscar Wilde’s
A Picture of Dorian Gray
are available exclusively through the Showtime store this month, and will roll out to bookstores and other online retailers in September.
Bif Bang Pow! has introduced a deck of tarot cards inspired by the ones used throughout the series and two action figures of Ethan Chandler (played by Josh Hartnett) and Vanessa Ives (played by Eva Green).
Additional character action figures will be available in late summer, and apparel, jewelry, drinkware, phone cases and episodic-themed merchandise will roll out throughout the season and beyond.
