We talked to Travis Beacham and Marc Guggenheim about creating a world of humans and mythical creatures for Carnival Row.
Carnival Row, Amazon's upcoming fantasy drama starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne, is epic in its scope and worldbuilding. Set in a neo-Victorian city filled with mythical creatures, the story follows Bloom's Philo, a human detective working to catch a serial killer, and Delevingne's Vignette, a refugee faerie with a dangerous secret.
Created by René Echevarria and Travis Beacham (Electric Dreams), with the Arrowverse's Marc Guggenheim as an executive producer, Carnival Row has a lot of TV experience behind-the-scenes. Den of Geek had the chance to chat with Beacham and Guggenheim about bringing such a complex world to life.
This interview has been edited for length and clarity. Some spellings of mythological creatures and concepts may not be the final Amazon-approved versions.
