After the commercial success of his film thriller, “Get Out”, Jordan Peele will be heading to the small screen with two of television’s finest creators & producers. Peele’s MonkeyPaw Production will be collaborating with Abram’s Bad Robot to executive produce, Lovecraft Country. Misha Green, whose Underground series was recently canceled by WGN America, is also slated to executive produce and write the series.
Lovecraft Country is based on a book series by Matt Ruff. According to Variety, “the anthology horror series follows 25-year-old Atticus Black, who joins up with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America to find his missing father. They must survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the malevolent spirits that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.”
