Based on Matt Ruff’s novel of the same name, Lovecraft Country 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 terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a paperback written by famous horror writer H. P. Lovecraft.
Lovecraft Country is executive produced by showrunner Misha Green along with Jordan Peele, J.J. Abrams, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller. It is a unique mix of drama, sci-fi, horror and action adventure genres with black protagonists.
