Them - Amazon Orders 2 Seasons of Horror Anthology Series from Lena Waithe



Per Deadline, Amazon Studios has ordered two seasons of horror anthology series "Them:, from executive producer Lena Waithe (The Chi, Dear White People), writer and executive producer Little Marvin, executive producers Roy Lee, Miri Yoon, and Michael Connelly. The project will be produced by studios Vertigo Prime and Sony Pictures TV.

The first season titled "Them: Covenant" is set in 1953 and centers around Alfred and Lucky Emory, who decide to move their family from North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighborhood. The family’s home on a tree lined, seemingly idyllic street becomes ground zero where malevolent forces both real and supernatural threaten to taunt, ravage and destroy them.

“Little Marvin’s script stayed with me for weeks after I read it,” said Waithe. “He’s written something that’s provocative and terrifying. The first season will speak to how frightening it was to be black in 1953. It will also remind us that being black in 2018 is just as horrifying. This anthology series will examine the cultural divides among all of us and explore us vs Them in a way we’ve never seen before.”

“My heart was still pounding an hour after I heard this pitch. The show is edge of your seat scary and addictive while also being provocative and socially relevant ,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “We are thrilled to be in business with the incredibly talented Lena Waithe, Little Marvin and Vertigo.”
