TV show description:
A supernatural drama series that’s a “spiritual descendent” of the original series, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels is set in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension.
The series follows earnest Detective Tiago Vega (Zovatto), the LAPD’s first Latino detective, and his seasoned partner, Lewis Michener (Lane).
When a grisly murder shocks the city, they become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles — from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism.
Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart. Tiago’s family includes his mother Maria (Barraza), brother Raul (Adam Rodriguez), brother Mateo (Nieves), and sister Josefina (Garza).
Episode #10 — Day of the Dead
Sad news spreads through the Crimson Cat; Fly Rico tries to placate the volatile crowd while Rio argues for vengeance; Peter Craft, Elsa, and the boys are trapped in their car during a riot as Tiago tries to help Mateo.
First aired: June 28, 2020.
