Cara Delevingne Slated to Star in Amazon Original Series "Carnival Row," Produced by Legendary Television

Amazon today announced that Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) is set to star in its original one-hour fantasy noir Carnival Row. Delevingne, who will join recently announced Orlando Bloom, will play Vignette Stonemoss, a faerish refugee who flees her war-torn homeland to come to the Burgue, where she must contend not only with rampant human prejudice against her kind, but with the secrets that have followed her to this new land.

The eight-episode Amazon Original Series, produced by Legendary Television, will be written and executive produced by showrunner Rene Echevarria (Star Trek, Teen Wolf, Castle, Medium). Joining Echevarria is Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans), who will serve as executive producer and wrote the feature script on which the project is based, A Killing on Carnival Row, which appeared on the very first installment of the Hollywood Blacklist in 2005, as well as Paul McGuigan (Victor Frankenstein, Luke Cage, Sherlock) who is set to direct and executive produce. The series is scheduled to begin filming this fall for a 2019 release.

Carnival Row is a fantasy-noir set in a neo-Victorian city. Mythical creatures fleeing their war-torn homeland have gathered in the city, and tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population. We follow the investigation of a string of unsolved murders which are eating away at whatever uneasy peace still exists.

Cara Delevingne is one of the most recognizable faces in the world. In addition to her huge successes in fashion, she has a burgeoning and exciting acting career. She is also an influential voice in the world of social media, amassing over 40 million followers on Instagram and 9 million followers on Twitter. Most recently, Delevingne starred opposite Dane Dehaan in Luc Besson's Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Last year, Delevingne appeared alongside Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and Viola Davis in DC Comics' Suicide Squad and also starred opposite Will Poulter, Alma Jodorowsky and Sebastien de Souza in Chris Foggin's Kids in Love. Her forthcoming film slate includes Life in A Year (2018), which she recently wrapped production with Jaden Smith in Toronto. In 2012, Delevingne made her film debut in Joe Wright's Anna Karenina alongside Keira Knightley. She also starred in the film Paper Towns opposite Nat Wolff. Delevingne has also previously been seen in Michael Winterbottom's The Face of an Angel, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2015, starring Kate Beckinsale and Daniel Bruhl, Joe Wright's Pan starring Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Rooney Mara and Garrett Hedland and Matthew Cullen's London Fields with Billy Bob Thornton, Jim Sturgess, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp.

Carnival Row will be available using the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/originals. For a list of all Amazon Video compatible devices, visit http://www.amazon.com/howtostream. The series will be a global release for members to watch via the Prime Video app or online at PrimeVideo.com in more than 200 countries and territories.

Legendary Television produces and distributes innovative top quality content for all platforms worldwide. The studio's roster includes the upcoming reboot of the classic family adventure series Lost in Space and The Looming Tower based on Lawrence Wright's Pulitzer Prize-winning book on the events leading up to 9/11, directed by Alex Gibney and adapted by Daniel Futterman. The third season of Legendary Television's critically acclaimed science-fiction drama Colony, co-created by Carlton Cuse, is currently in production. Two seasons of Love, a relationship comedy from Judd Apatow, are now available, with a third season in post-production.

Delevingne is represented by WME and Sloane Offer Weber & Dern LLP.
