You get “Lovecraft Country” — a horror series based on the novel of the same name from author Matt Ruff — that will debut on HBO this August and the first trailer has arrived. Green will also serve as the showrunner on the series.
Here’s the series synopsis from HBO:
“The series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he joins up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) 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.”
