Thought this sounds like it could be interesting. Based on a 2016 book of the same name. Anyone read it?

 

Jonathan Majors and Jurnee Smollett-Bell play the leads in Jim Crow 1950s America. They, and another character, go on a road trip to find Majors character's missing father. They encounter horrors of both the racist and Lovecraft kind.

It would be nice to have a TV series announced that didn’t involve JJ sodding Abrams.

I've read the book and really enjoyed it. 

Gonna be a few sequences that will cause furore if they recreate them.

It sounds completely amazing! Everything about the Jim Crow era is creepy as hell, add cults and monsters to that and you've got something really cool, unnerving and unique.

Often the same thing!

 

Sounds like a cool show.
