HBO invites the masses to ‘Lovecraft Country’ on August 16th.
Executive produced by ‘Get Out’s Jordan Peele, the hotly anticipated drama is based on Matt Ruff’s book of the same name.
The series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as teams with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America to find his father (Michael Kenneth Williams) — who has been missing.
What happens next is a story of struggle and survival to survive and overcome racist horrors.
Ahead of its premiere on HBO and HBO Max, watch the first full-length trailer below…
Alongside Peele, ‘Lovecraft Country’ is exec produced by showrunner Misha Green, J.J. Abrams, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim and David Knoller.
We’ll be watching. Will you?!
