TV show description:
From creators René Echevarria and Travis Beacham, the Carnival Row TV show is a fantasy drama set in a Victorian world. There the Fae and humans live side by side, but not so peacefully.
Once upon a time, Tirnanoc was home to the Fae — faeries, fauns, trolls, centaurs — creatures we think of as mythological. But mankind brought war to their realm, so the Fae sought refuge in The Burgue.
Now, eking out bleak existence on Carnival Row, the Fae are abused, exploited, and treated like animals. There is great tension between them and intolerant humans, but things go from bad to worse when a series of murders strikes the Row.
As a human detective, Inspector Rycroft Philostrate (Bloom) knows this case is the most critical one he has ever worked. Unlike many of his colleagues, Philo has compassion for the Fae and strives to treat them as he would any other person.
Once upon a time, Philo fell in love with a faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne), but they were separated by war. Now that she too is a refugee in The Burgue, they rekindle their affair, despite the risk of making themselves targets. What’s more — Vignette is keeping a secret which could endanger everyone.
Despised by humans, the Fae are not permitted to live, love, or fly. As darkness envelops The Burgue, it is up to Philo and Vignette to keep the flame of hope alive.
