Jordan Peele and Underground creator Misha Green are a duo on a mission.
The two are combining forces to bring to life an HBO drama series based on the 2016 novel Lovecraft Country from author Matt Ruff.
[The novel tells the story of] 25-year-old Atticus Black. After his father goes missing, Black joins up with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America to find him. This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the malevolent spirits that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback. The goal is an anthological horror series that reclaims genre storytelling from the African-American perspective.
Jordan will executive produce the project, while Misha will pen the pilot episode and serve as showrunner.
Now this sounds interesting!
Jordan and Misha are making big moves!
