Following the success of Get Out, Jordan Peele is going back to the small screen and teaming up with J.J. Abrams on a HBO show based off Matt Ruff’s novel Lovecraft Country. The drama series will feature a pilot written by Underground‘s Misha Green. According to Peele, the show will be a social thriller mixing horror and sci-fi.
The story will follow Atticus Black on a road trip through 1950s America. Black is searching for his missing father and much like Get Out, the show will talk about race relations.
