Straight off the success of Get Out, director/writer Jordan Peele is back at it again with a new project, and like his breakthrough film it draws on racial tensions and will be real scary.

Based on an adaptation of Matt Ruff’s Lovecraft Country novel from 2016, the production will be a horror anthology series that "reclaims genre storytelling from the African-American perspective," according to Deadline.

The series has been picked up by HBO and Peele will act as executive producer alongside J.J Abrams’ Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television. There’s no release date yet, but watch this space!
