The Lord of the Rings actor is heading to the small screen. Orlando Bloom will star in an upcoming Amazon fantasy series titled Carnival Show. The actor will portray a police investigator, investigating the murder of a faerie showgirl. Bloom will also produce the hour-long series, which will begin shooting this fall.
This might be the 40-year-old actor’s first time starring in a TV series, however, he is no stranger to the fantasy genre, recently starring alongside Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The actor revealed in the past that his 6-year-old son Flynn is a huge fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, so it’ll be interesting to see what he’ll think of Carnival Show.
In the studio’s statement, Carnival Show is a “fantasy-noir set in a neo-Victorian city,” and is aiming for a 2019 fall release.
