John Logan Comes to TV With Showtime’s ‘Penny Dreadful’ – NYTimes.com

Three books sit on a side table at John Logan’s hotel suite on Central Park South: Mark Harris’s “Pictures at a Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood,” a history of the best picture nominees at the 1968 Oscars; a collection of English Romantic poetry; and a novelization from the 1984-96 TV series “Murder, She Wrote.” Together, they represent the breadth of this dramatist’s interests.
