Pemberley Digital has teamed up with PBS Digital Studios to bring you “Frankenstein M.D.,” a multiplatform web series adaptation of the classic novel Frankenstein. Inspired by brilliant British author Mary Shelley, the series reimagines the title character as Victoria Frankenstein, an obsessive, eccentric prodigy determined to prove herself in the male-dominated fields of science and medicine.
“Frankenstein, M.D.” is the first scripted series for PBS Digital Studios and reimagines the title character as Victoria Frankenstein, played by Anna Lore. Victoria is a PhD/MD student focused on a career as a research scientist. Along with her colleague, Iggy DeLacey (Steve Zaragoza), the ambitious, daring genius creates a YouTube science show, explaining complex biological and medical concepts to a general audience. As she pursues her boldest line of research yet, she makes a shocking series of discoveries that could potentially endanger not only her career, but her life and the lives of her friends.
Episodes air every Tuesday and Friday on the PBS Digital Studios YouTube channel. Victoria’s science blog further explores topics and issues from the show, while supplementary videos from Victoria’s friends air on Pemberley Digital’s channel.
“Frankeinstein, M.D.” merchandise is available from DFTBA.com.
