Amazon studios has picked up ‘Lore’. The horror anthology series produced by Gail Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) based on the hit podcast created by Aaron Mahnke will be a 10 episode series on Amazon. The podcast, one of iTunes’ Best of 2015, was launched in March 2015 and in more than 30 installments explored the true origins of pop culture’s most legendary horror characters and myths such as vampires, zombies, werewolves, ghosts, serial killers and witches.
“Lore is a thrilling podcast with a rabid following, and we jumped at the opportunity to work with Gale Anne Hurd, Ben Silverman and Howard Owens to develop it into a series for Amazon Prime members,” Conrad Riggs, Amazon Originals’ head of unscripted, said Thursday in a statement. “The series will be a truly unnerving and exciting experience that Prime members will not forget.”
Lore marks Hurd’s latest small-screen venture. The prolific producer counts AMC’s The Walking Dead and prequel Fear the Walking Dead as well as USA Network’s upcoming Falling Water.
