They join previously introduced forged member Daniel Zovatto. Described as a religious descendant of the authentic “Penny Dreadful,” the new sequence opens in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and location deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Zovatto) is embroiled in a tale that demonstrates the history of Los Angeles: from the making of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the hazardous espionage actions of the 3rd Reich and the rise of radio evangelism.
Garza will perform Josefina Vega, the youngest of the Vega household. She performs the portion of the silent and neglected sister, but possesses a strong spirit waiting to be unleashed.
Nieves will perform Mateo Vega, Tiago’s volatile more youthful brother. Even though basically goodhearted, he lacks the crystal clear toughness and ambition of Tiago, so he’s susceptible to both his personal capricious emotions and several influences close to him.
Garza most lately appeared in a direct part of the Usa Network sequence adaptation of “The Purge” movie franchise. She also starred in the Heritage sequence “Six.” Her other Television set credits involve “NCIS,” “Modern Family,” and “Sweet/Vicious.”
She is repped by Abrams Artists Company, Artists 1st, and Jackoway Tyerman.
Nieves’ earlier credits involve “New Amsterdam,” “Better Call Saul,” and “Shameless.” He will also appear in the Spike Lee-produced function “See You Yesterday.” He is repped by Grey Expertise Group and Hansen Jacobson.
“Penny Dreadful” creator, writer, and government producer John Logan will return in those very same roles for “City of Angels.” Michael Aguilar will also join as an government producer. Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris of Neal Road Productions will also government make, with James Bagley co-government manufacturing. Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions will make.
