How Frankenstein Has Come Alive Again, And Again...And Again! Mwahaha.

Victoria Frankenstein, [almost] MD, is a sharp and ambitious student in Frankenstein, MD, a creative, vlog-style modern day adaptation of Mary Shelley's story, written and produced by the Emmy-winning team at Pemberley Digital (who brought you Emma Approved and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries). Check the PBS Digital Studios YouTube channel every Tuesday and Friday for new episodes starring Anna Lore as Victoria Frankenstein, and Steve Zaragoza as Iggy.
