The eight-part series was directed only by women and boasts an all-female writing and producing team. Hulu is intending to even the playing field with its upcoming brothel drama Harlots.

The eight-part series — which stars Samantha Morton, Lesley Manville and Jessica Brown Findlay — promises to show as much male nudity as female nudity and tell its story from the perspective of women.

“It was very important to us from the beginning to make it about the female gaze. We were determined to make something different,” executive producer Alison Owen said Saturday during a panel for the drama at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour. “Our hope from the beginning was, ‘Everything from the whore’s eye view.'”

To ensure that the story comes from the perspective of women, only female directors were hired to helm the hourlong episodes. Among them: Coky Giedroyc (Penny Dreadful) and China Moo-Young (Thirteen, Humans). “We really set out to get all female directors. We got the best of the best in the U.K., and it has influenced the show exactly the way we wanted it to,” said executive producer Debra Hayward, who added that the series also has an all-female writing team.
Set against the backdrop of 18th century Georgian London, Harlots explores the city’s “most valuable commercial activity” (i.e. sex) based on the stories of real women. Written by Moira Buffini (Jane Eyre), the drama is based on an original idea by Buffini and Alison Newman.

“It’s a show about economics as much as it is a show about sex work,” said Manville, who plays a madam who threatens Morton’s character, Margaret Wells, as she struggles to reconcile her roles as mother and brothel owner. “What the show does really well is show prostitution from every social angle.”

According SFX Magazine, the doctor protagonist who gives the title to the film will be very similar to the one described in the pages of the novel: haunted, tormented, romantic, that’s why James McAvoy was a safe choice. “The film is about obsession, the desperate search of scientific progress, of immortality, of the attempt to replace God,” said the actor. “But it is very focused on the relationship between Igor and Victor rather than on the concept of existentialism.”

Daniel Radcliffe plays his shoulder Igor: it is through his tip of view that will be told this new iteration comes from a script by Max Landis.

The actor has in fact talked about something that will emerge over the course of the film:

At one point, the film becomes a matter of figuring out how far you can live in the shadows of those who made you who you are and if you can live a life in freedom. Or you will be forever linked to that person?

Finally, the piece highlights the component Sherlockian whole production. Besides Paul McGuiganwho directed the first two seasons of Sherlock, the cast also includes Mark Gatiss, Louise Brealeyand Andrew Scott – all actors who are part of the famous BBC television series.

Victor Frankenstein will be in US cinemas on October 2nd. To kill time, soon will come the first trailer as confirmed by the director on twitter.

ARC Entertainment has debuted this first trailer for Andrew Levitas’ ensemble drama Lullaby, which opens on June 13th. Starring the likes of Garrett Hedlund, Richard Jenkins, Amy Adams, Jessica Brown Findlay, Anne Archer, Terrence Howard, Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Barden, the synopsis for the film is as follows.

Estranged from his family, Jonathan (Hedlund) discovers his father has decided to take himself off life support in forty-eight hours’ time. During this intensely condensed period, a lifetime of drama plays out. Robert (Jenkins) fights a zero sum game to reclaim all that his illness stole from his family. A debate rages on patients’ rights and what it truly means to be free. Jonathan reconciles with his father, reconnects with his mother (Archer), sister (Brown-Findlay), and his love (Adams) and reclaims his voice through two unlikely catalysts—a young, wise-beyond-her-years patient (Barden) and a no-nonsense nurse (Hudson). Through this intensely life-affirming prism, an unexpected and powerful journey of love, laughter, and forgiveness unfolds.
