Producers Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams come together for a TV series adaptation of Matt Ruff’s novel Lovecraft Country. This show is an allegorical horror tale told against the backdrop of a racially segregated 1950s America. The story follows three Black Americans on a road trip to find a missing person where they not only have to deal with the racism of the 1950’s but supernatural forces straight out of an H.P. Lovecraft story.

The show will premier on HBO Sunday, August 16th, and will conclude its ten episodes run on October 18th, just in time for Halloween. The series features familiar HBO faces such as Michael Kenneth Williams (HBO’s The Wire and Boardwalk Empire), Montrose Freeman, and Courtney B. Vance (HBO’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, American Crime Story) and Jonathan Majors (When We Rise).
