Lovecraft Country is one of the most talked about television shows over the last six months. Its showrunner, Misha Green, recently shared the pilot to Lovecraft Country on Twitter. And as she says, head on over there to download it before she has to take it down.
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 the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.
Lovecraft Country is executive produced by showrunner Misha Green along with J.J. Abrams, Jordan Peele, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller.
Misha Green is one of the few African American showrunners in Hollywood.
In the writer’s room with Misha
On her website, Misha says that reading scripts helped her to become a better writer. We encourage all of our TV writers out there to read as many scripts as you can.
