Lovecraft Country - Jurnee Smollett-Bell to Star in HBO's Horror Anthology



Actress Jurnee Smollett-Bell has been tapped to reunite with Underground showrunner Misha Green and star in the latter's Jordan Peele- and J.J. Abrams-produced HBO drama series Lovecraft Country.

Picked up straight to series last May, Lovecraft Country is based on the 2016 novel from Matt Ruff. It follows Atticus Black as he joins up with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father. 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.

Smollett-Bell will star as Letitia "Leti" Dandridge, who hustled her way across the country as an artist protesting for civil rights who now finds herself back home looking to plant some roots.
