Jordan Peele's HBO series Lovecraft Country cast three leads

A few months back we let you guys know that Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams are teaming up to bring us an all-new horror-drama series called LOVECRAFT COUNTRY. The show will air on HBO and today we have word on just who has been cast in the straight-to-series drama.

Deadline reports that Wunmi Mosaku will lead the new series alongside Jonathan Majors and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (see above). Mosaku will play "Rudy Dandridge, a hustler just like her half-sister Leticia, only her hustles haven’t paid off. Her family ties are tested when she’s presented with an offer she can’t refuse."

Atticus Black (Majors) joins up with his friend Letitia (Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father. Thus 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.

The first episode is directed by Yann Demange from a script written by Misha Green, who also executive produces with Peele, Abrams, Bad Robot's Ben Stephenson, and Demange. The show is based on Matt Ruff's 2016 novel. Pick up a copy of the book HERE.
