Powerhouse producers Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams have teamed up with HBO to bring Matt Ruff’s novel from 2016 – Lovecraft Country – to the screen and judging from what you are about to see – they’ve hit it out of the park.
Here’s what HBO Has to say about the project:
“HBO’s new drama series, based on the 2016 novel by Matt Ruff of the same name, debuts this August. The series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he joins up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). 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.”
The show debuts on Aug. 16th – if you haven’t yet signed up for HBO Max – the time has come.
