What do you get when you cross Once Upon a Time‘s public domain-driven storytelling with the monsters of British Victorian literature? (Besides that one episode of Once set in black-and-white Frankenstein world.)

That’d be Penny Dreadful, a new series premiering May 11 on Showtime — and Monday afternoon on YouTube. The drama — named for the cheap, sensational, serialized tales popular in 19th century Britain — weaves together a set of stories about characters both familiar (Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray) and original. You’ll find unembeddable video of the first episode here.

Penny Dreadful premieres May 11 at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime.
