Amazon's fantasy Victorian-era refugee story 'Carnival Row' premieres in Hollywood

Amazon's next original series will take viewers to "Carnival Row," a lavish Victorian-era fantasy world where mythical creatures are forced from their homeland and must live uneasily alongside humans.

The eight-episode drama stars Cara Delevingne as a refugee fairy opposite Orlando Bloom, who plays a human detective trying to solve a string of gruesome killings in the area.

The pair have a connection from the past.

"Right now, a refugee story in its time will not be made," Delevingne said at the show's premiere in Hollywood on Wednesday (August 21).

"It's so important that these things are being made because, again, people want it to be a little withdrawn from reality because no one can really take the truth.

So that's why it's important." Bloom walked the black carpet at the premiere with fiancee Katy Perry.

The series was filmed in Prague on a set that Bloom said was as detailed as some of the blockbuster movies he had worked on, including "The Lord of the Rings" series.

The eight season-one episodes of "Carnival Row" will debut on the Amazon Prime Video streaming service on Aug.

30.

The script is based on a story by writer Travis Beacham.

Amazon has already ordered a second season.
