Airdate: Lovecraft Country
New HBO drama set in 1950s segregated United States comes to Binge.
New HBO drama Lovecraft Country will screen on Binge in August.
The story is about a young African American, who travels across the 1950s segregated United States in search of his missing father, but comes with supernatural elements.
This premieres on the same day as the USA. Foxtel is yet to confirm linear broadcast details.
Lovecraft Country is a ten-episode series based on Matt Ruff’s novel of the same name that follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors), as he journeys with his childhood friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollet) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) on a road trip from Chicago across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father, Montrose (Michael Kenneth Williams). Their search-and-rescue turns in to a struggle to survive and overcome both a racist white America and the monstrous creatures that could be ripped from author H.P Lovecraft’s horror paperbacks that George devours.
Lovecraft Country features a stellar ensemble cast including Australian actor Abbey Lee. Jordan Peele (Get Out) and J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) are executive producers along with showrunner Misha Green (Underground), Daniel Sackheim (HBO’s Game of Thrones and True Detective) Yann Demange, Ben Stephenson and Bill Carraro. Produced by afemme Inc., Bad Robot Productions and Monkeypaw productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
New episodes will stream weekly from Monday 17 August.
