HBO’s new drama series Lovecraft Country is based on the 2016 novel by Matt Ruff of the same name.
The series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he joins 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 (Underground), who also serves as showrunner, J.J Abrams, Jordan Peele and others.
