Amazon Orders Horror Event Series THEM

July 28, 2018 by  

ThemAmazon has ordered two seasons of the event horror series THEM. The series comes from writer and executive producer Little Marvin, and executive producers Lena Waithe, Roy Lee, Miri Yoon, and Michael Connelly with Vertigo Prime.

In the first installment, THEM: COVENANT (which is set in 1953), “Alfred and Lucky Emory 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.”

“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, in a statement. “We are thrilled to be in business with the incredibly talented Lena Waithe, Little Marvin and Vertigo.”

“Little Marvin’s script stayed with me for weeks after I read it,” added Lena 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.”

“I’ve always felt that dark, surreal times deserve dark, surreal mirrors to show us ourselves,” said Little Marvin. “And at this point in time one of the best ways to examine fractures in our world through the visceral and raw lens of horror. I’m beyond thrilled that our series has found its home with the fine folks at Amazon.”
