From showrunner Misha Green, Lovecraft Country will premiere on HBO on August 16th—and the official poster warns you to be careful what you search for…
Based on the 2016 novel of the same name by Matt Ruff, the series follows Atticus Freeman, his friend Letitia, and his Uncle George as they embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of Atticus’ missing father. This begins a struggle to survive both the racist terrors of white America and terrifying monsters that could be ripped from the pages of an H.P. Lovecraft paperback.
The cast includes Jonathan Majors (The Last Black Man in San Francisco), Jurnee Smollett (Birds of Prey), Courtney B. Vance (American Crime Story), and Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire). Misha Green also serves as an executive producer alongside Jordan Peele, J.J. Abrams, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller.
