Lore: Horror anthology series coming to Amazon

The podcast is getting the TV treatment

Updated

Amazon is getting a horror anthology series of its own. On Thursday, the company announced its new series Lore, inspired by the hit podcast of the same name.

The podcast brings pieces of history to life with narration, mixed media, and dramatic scenes — a formula that Amazon is following with its 10-episode first season.

“Based on the popular podcast of the same name, which has over 3.2 million monthly listens, the unscripted horror anthology series will present tales dealing with frightening, psychologically disturbing, and often paranormal true events that have spawned modern-day nightmares,” Amazon said in a press release.

Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) will serve as an executive producer and Glen Morgan (The X-Files) is attached as showrunner.

“Being a horror aficionado, Aaron Mahnke’s Lore podcast captivated me from the very beginning as it explores the terrifying truth behind the world’s most frightening legends,” said Hurd. “And just as Mahnke revolutionized the serial podcast, Amazon is reinventing the unscripted series — and I couldn’t be more excited about the mashup.”

Lore will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in 2017.
