HBO released the first official trailer for Jordan Peele’s hotly-anticipated new series ‘Lovecraft Country’. The upcoming drama-horror television series is based on Matt Ruff’s novel of the same name and looks to blend Jim Crow horrors with supernatural monsters.
Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Black as he joins up with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father. This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.
Lovecraft Country is executive produced by Misha Green -who also serves as showrunner- J.J Abrams, Jordan Peele, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange (who also directed Episode 1), Daniel Sackheim (who also directed Episodes 2 and 3) and David Knoller (executive producer on Episode 1).
Lovecraft Country is set to premiere in August 2020 on HBO. Watch the first official trailer below and read more on the latest entertainment news.
