Abraham of ‘Cloverfield’ and ‘Armageddon’, a simultaneous developer of “Get Out” and four other projects he referred to like thrillers, are the head characters of the series.
The show is a historical fiction that depicts the culture of racism prevalent in the 1950s in America. The synopsis of the series follows a 22-year-old veteran military person Atticus Turner who is on a journey to England in search of his lost father. While he partnered with Letitia, his friend from infancy and the uncle, George, they were faced with a tussle to triumph over the racist terror of white America and a monster that could be frayed from a Lovecraft Paperback.
The cast of the horror drama consists of Jonathan Major as Atticus Back, his friend Letitia, played by Jurnee Smollett-Bell. Ruby Dandridge was played out by Wunmi Mosaku who is Leti’s half-sister, a hustler. The aunt of Atticus, Hippolyta Black, was played by Aunjanue Ellis.
