Matt Ruff’s acclaimed 2016 novel Lovecraft Country is being turned into an HBO series, with Jordan Peele and JJ Abrams amongst those producing.

The story tells of Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he embarks upon a road trip across 1950s America in search of his missing father, with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance), in tow. It isn’t an easy trip though, with the trio facing monsters ranging from white supremacists to altogether more supernatural terrors.

Blending elements of history, noir and horror, Lovecraft Country is set to air starting this August.
