Hulu is developing a new horror anthology series called Monsterland, based on Nathan Ballingrud’s short story collection North American Lake Monsters, and Jonathan Tucker (Hannibal) will star in the first episode.
The series will detail encounters with mermaids, fallen angels, and other strange beasts that drive broken people to desperate acts in order to try and repair their lives. The first episode, which will also star Kaitlyn Devor (Unbelievable), will see an overwhelmed teen mother offered a ticket out of her dead-end life by a mysterious stranger. But escape will come at a price…
Mary Laws is creating, writing, and executive producing the series. Laws wrote the screenplay for The Neon Demon and was a writer on the series Preacher.
