Based on the 2016 novel of the same name, Lovecraft Country has been adapted into a horror drama series, with a new teaser trailer released by Sky.
The 10-part series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he teams up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance), on a treacherous trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search for his missing father.
They are faced with trying to survive against grisly monsters and racist terrors which will prove to be a dangerous feat.
Freeman is a Korean war veteran who wears his heart on his sleeve and has a love of pulp novels, which puts him at odds with his strong-willed and secretive father Montrose (Michael Kenneth Williams) who doesn’t like to entertain fantasy.
His uncle George who is warm, good natured and well read is the one who really understands him and has been more of a father figure.
Letitia is an artist who has been across the country protesting for civil rights and has had to hustle for everything she has.
Lovecraft Country is created and produced by Jordan Peele, J.J. Abrams and Misha Green, who also serves as the showrunner, and is set to air on Sky Atlantic this summer.
