HBO’s much-talked-about dark fantasy horror series Lovecraft Country will be hitting Showmax this month.
The one-hour drama series is based on Matt Ruff’s novel of the same name and follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he meets up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) 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.
Lovecraft Country is executive produced by Misha Green, who also serves as showrunner, J.J. Abrams, Jordan Peele, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim and David Knoller; based on the novel by Matt Ruff.
Lovecraft Country episode 1-4 will air on Showmax on 8 September, episode 5-8 on 6 October, episode 9-10 on 20 October.
