The one-hour fantasy noir series will see Bloom play Rycroft Philostrate, a police inspector investigating the murder of a faerie showgirl on Carnival Row.

Carnival Row will feature eight episodes and is produced by Legendary Television. It is written and executive produced by showrunner Rene Echevarria (Star Trek, Teen Wolf, Castle, Medium). Paul McGuigan (Victor Frankenstein, Luke Cage, Sherlock) is set to direct and executive produce, and Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans), who wrote original feature script, A Killing on Carnival Row, will serve as executive producer. Bloom will also serve as a producer on Carnival Row.

The series will begin filming this autumn and is expected to be released in 2019.
